i think question is incomplete !
is differentiable.
y=([\sqrt{8-5x}\])/(x+1)...it's a square root also..not a two

\[f(x)=\frac{\sqrt{8-5x}}{x+1}\]
yes, that's what it looks like!
ok u must check for continuity first
when I graphed it, it looked like 1/x graph
yeah its something like that..maybe
so how do I check for continuity?
ok u have some restrictions here.. division by zero is not allowed under radical cant be negative
actually u must find domain of ur function
domain is x=-1
\[x\neq -1\]
ohyeah you're right
and what about radical?
what's radical?
square root
x\[\neq5/8\]
er 8/5
when u have something like \[\sqrt{x}\] u must have \[x\ge0\] right ?
yes
so what about the expression under square root sign?
\[x \neq 8/5\]
emm i mean u must have \(8-5x\ge0\) and this leads to\[x\le\frac{8}{5}\]make sense?
oh yes sorry i meant to do that sign instead of the nonequal sign
it does make sense
good
ok so the domain of function becomes\[x\le \frac{8}{5} \ \ \text{and} \ \ x\neq-1\]
or u can write it like this\[(-\infty,-1)\cup (-1,\frac{8}{5}]\]
got it. so is that where it's differentiable?
yes thats it ... and just one more point function is not continous at end points \(x=-1\) and \(x=\frac{8}{5}\) so it'll not be differentiable at that points...
ok thank you so much! i appreciate it :)
very welcome :)
