Can you help with another one? I dont understand the whole domain part... Let f(x) = 3x + 2 and g(x) =7x + 6. Find f ·g and its domain. A. 6x2 + 4x + 42; all real numbers B. 21x2 + 32x + 12; all real numbers C. 21x2 +32x + 12; all real numbers except x = -6/7 D. 6x2 + 4x + 42; all real numbers except x = -2/3 I know it's 21x^2+32x +12

f * g means f(x) times g(x) so you have to expand out (3x+2)*(7x+6) you can use the FOIL rule or a table like this one |dw:1436827943285:dw|

yes, I know what f(x)*g(x) is = 21x^2+32x +12 But what does it mean by find the domain? How do I find it and figure out if its all real numbers or not?

Thank you for the help (:

  • jim_thompson5910
the domain of f(x) and g(x) is the set of all real numbers. You can plug in any number for x without worrying about things like division by zero, taking the square root of a negative number, etc etc. The same applies to f(x)*g(x). Multiplying any two polynomials gives you a polynomial. The domain of any polynomial is the set of all real numbers
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
saying something like `all real numbers except x = -6/7` is false because x = -6/7 is perfectly valid as an input. Go ahead and try it

I thought so! but what about f/g? f(x) = x2 - 16 and g(x) = x+4. Find and its domain. A. x - 4; all real numbers except x not equal 4 B. x + 4; all real numbers except x not equal -4 C. x + 4; all real numbers except x not equal 4 D. x - 4; all real numbers except x not equal -4; I know its Either A or D

hint: you cannot divide by zero, so make sure that the denominator x+4 is not zero

  • anonymous
I don't quite understand..
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
solve x+4 = 0 for x to figure out what restriction you have to make
anonymous
  • anonymous
obviously it's -4 for x but what do you mean by restriction? I'm sorry I'm stuck.. I'm good with working through equations but this doesn't make sense to me
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
well if x = -4, then the denominator x+4 becomes 0 right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you draw it out or something? How do you determine that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sorry
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
The expression simplifies to x-4 The only restriction is that \(\Large x \ne -4\) to avoid making the denominator 0. Any other x value works

ohh I understand now!! Thanks!

So it was A?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no, I said x cannot equal -4 (not positive 4)

@jim_thompson5910, how did you get the red and blue colors in your first posts?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
if you right click on the LaTex math, you can go to the "show math as" and then to "Tex commands"
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
strangely, it's not working for me. Idk if it's working for you but it should show you this \Large {\color{red}{f(x)}} + {\color{blue}{g(x)}} = ({\color{red}{-5x-4}})+({\color{blue}{6x-7}})
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
surround `\Large {\color{red}{f(x)}} + {\color{blue}{g(x)}} = ({\color{red}{-5x-4}})+({\color{blue}{6x-7}})` with `\[` and `\]` to see the LaTex formatting show up
