Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1√(x^2  9x +20)/√(x^2  5x + 6) I already know the domain. But, how do you get it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first workout contraints for squareroot : the thing inside squareroot cannot be negative

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next work out constraints for denominator : denominator cannot be equal to 0

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1consider numerator first : \(\sqrt{x^2  9x +20}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can u work out domain for that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1{xx>=5} is that right?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1somewhat right :) lets see how to solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x^29x+20 >= 0 x^24x5x+20 >=0 x(x4) 5(x4) >= 0 (x4)(x5) >= 0 x <= 4 or x >= 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats one constraint for numerator, lets find out the constraints for denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think I am starting to understand it :)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good :) since, denominator is also under radical, it must be >=0 : x^2  5x + 6 >= 0 x^23x2x + 6 >= 0 x(x3) 2(x3) >= 0 (x2)(x3) >= 0 x <= 2 or x >= 3

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with those two things, we finished with the first step of finding constraints for radicals

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so far we have this : x <= 4 or x >= 5 x <= 2 or x >= 3

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup, I understand it :)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next one is denominator can never equal to 0. so, x^2  5x + 6 \(\ne\) 0 x^23x2x + 6 \(\ne\) 0 x(x3) 2(x3) \(\ne\) 0 (x2)(x3) \(\ne\) 0 x \(\ne\) 2 or x \(\ne\) 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1w8 Isn't it that it should be: x >= 4 or x >= 5 x >= 2 or x >= 3 ???

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets combine all constraints and make a meaningful constraint

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x4)(x5) >= 0 (x2)(x3) >= 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i got ur question, il give quick explanation

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you comfortable with parabola graph ?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1il show u in graph why its x <=4 , x >=5

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know few things about parabola

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im sketching this parabola : (x4)(x5) >= 0

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it intersect x axis at 4, 5 right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1between 4 and 5, it is sinking down into x axis eh ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its becoming NEGATIVE

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why did it intersect in x axis at 4, 5?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when u factored you got : (x4)(x5)

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that means it intersects xaxis at 4 and 5

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ohh, ok what if it says (x4)(x+5) does it intersect at 4 and 5 ?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats right, when it says, (x4)(x+5) = 0 then it intersects at 4 and 5

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1cuz for it to equal to 0, one of both of the factors must equal to 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the graph is like that?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1perfect, thats (x4)(x+5)

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and the domain is x>=4,x<=5 is it correct?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats right ! you became expert ;p

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thanks! I know understand it. :) let's now continue with our previous discussion :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great ! so far what we have

moongazer
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1next one is denominator can never equal to 0. so, x^2  5x + 6 ≠ 0 x^23x2x + 6 ≠ 0 x(x3) 2(x3) ≠ 0 (x2)(x3) ≠ 0 x ≠ 2 or x ≠ 3

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets put down all the 3 constraints we got in one place :

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11) numerator radical : x <= 4 or x >= 5 2) denominator radical : x <= 2 or x >= 3 3) denominator cant be 0 : x ≠ 2 or x ≠ 3

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I understand it. What's next?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can we combine them as one, like this : 2) 3) : x < 2 or x > 3

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll be back just continue.

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1someone is calling me

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok after combining 2) and 3) we are left with : 1) numerator radical : x <= 4 or x >= 5 2) x < 2 or x > 3 this is the last step. see if u can figure out

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1out of x < 2 & x <= 4, x < 2 is more restrictive, so we have this in our domain : \(\color{green}{x < 2}\)

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1out of x > 3 & x <= 4 x > 3 , x <= 4 , which is same as : \(\color{green}{3<x\le 4}\)

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and of course the last one, \(\color{green}{x >= 5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry for being away, I'm here again :)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1np :) see if above stuff makes sense

moongazer
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it makes sense but why in the final answer they used "or" not "and" "," "then" or anything else dom K: {xx<2 or 3<x<=4 or x>=5}

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah we always combine domain with "or" why ? cuz its meaningful. let me ask u a q

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1suppose we write : x < 2 and x >=5

moongazer
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the domain it is ALWAYS "or" ?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is that possible ? can x be BOTH less than 2 and greater than 5 at the SAME time ha ?

moongazer
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, it is not possible

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is "1" less than 2 and greater than "5" ?

ganeshie8
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, but if we put it like this : either "1" is less than 2 or greater than "5"

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how meaningful it is, so while phrasing domain also, we use commonsense aswell :)

moongazer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, Thank you very much for helping me :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1np i learned as well. i forgot these long back in college... i enjoyed going thru these again.. thnks you too :)
