Do you know what the question is asking for? i.e. do you know what the domain of a function is?

the question just says determine the domain of \[f(x)=\sqrt{9x ^{2}}\]

Yes I know. But do YOU know what it means? What is the "domain"

wouldn't i be breaking down the square root of 9  x squared (3x)(3+x)

It is all the values of x that you could put into your function to get an output value. So a better question would be to ask yourself what values of x can I put into the function that makes it DNE

DNE is 'does not exist' i.e refers to a part on the functions graph that cannot be determined, because it simply does not exist. :) Basically you need to watch out for square roots, logarithms and denominators equalling zero. In your case, you have a square root, and as @henryrodriguez713 pointed out, you CANNOT have a negative number under the square root.

To get rid of the square root, simply square both sides of the equation.

oh since i can't have a negative number, the answer would be false correct? its been 3 years since i've been in school xD

The function does not exist for x values less than 3 and more than 3

Haha. Don't worry if you haven't been in school for three years. All that really matters is that you're learning it. :D
