Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it is a lesson on domain of a function

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The domain is all real numbers, simply speaking, because you can plug any real number for x into the equation h(x), and get a valid output.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Any polynomial, by defnition, will have a domain of "all real numbers".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so just because it's a polynomial, we know right off the bat that the domain will be "all real numbers" which is 0 and any positive whole number?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Think about it logically. You have whole number powers of x, with some coefficients in front of them, (+ some number at the end sometimes). No matter what real number you put in for x, you get a real number back. there is just simply no reason for the output to be imaginary if you plug in a real number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You can make an exercise, perhaps.... Make up a polynomial, and plug in some real numbers into the polynomial. You will always see that your output is going to be a real number.
