ive been asked...
A real-valued function of a real variable is defined by
f(x) = 1/(√(|x|-(1/x))) (sorry its abit hard to read it properly)
Assuming the maximal domain convention, what is the domain of f?
how would i do this?

If a function is given by a formula and the domain is not stated explicitly, the convention is that the domain is the set of all numbers for which the formula makes sense and defines a real number.
So essentially, work out the domain assuming that there are no restrictions on x other than the natural restrictions imposed by the function itself.
