    for (a) x cannot be 0 if not its undefined

    (b) is x cannot be -1 if not denominator is 0 n 1/0 is undefined

    for a) I got (1/x) + 1 >= 0 ? Did I set it up correctly?

    Umm u dont even actually have to set up.. just apply this few rules (1) anything divided by 0 ( a fraction) is undefined so for (a) square root of (1/x + 1) u know that 1 over 0 is undefined when x = 0 so ur domain would be x cannot be equal to 0.. as simple as that

    the denominator cannot be zero and function is only 1 to 1

    Do I need to think about the negatives as well?

    yes.. for example 1/(x+1).. ur x cannot be negative one cause -1 +1 = 0

    For a) if the denominator was negative, it would make the equation inside the sqrt negative

    it doesnt matter a fraction is always smaller than a whole number when the numerator is smaller than the denominator
