    well the domain are the x values for which the function is defined. for a fraction such as yours to be undefined the divisor must be 0 but x^2+8 > 0 for every x so the domain is R, every real number

    Remember, the denominator cannot be 0. Since the denominator is x^2+8, and x^2 has a smallest value of 0, and 0+8 will always be positive, there are no restrictions on x and the domain is all real numbers.

    hey Mertsj, can you help me with some advanced number theory? i am trying to do something with the sigma function(sum of divisors of number)

    so then the domain would be all real numbers greater than 0?

    Didn't I post that the domain is all real numbers?
