# Simple Domain and Range question Watch

1. Find the domain and range of

So I know the domain is {}

But I don't know about the range!

I know that z has to be a positive square root;
but the book says the range is {}

How do they know z is also going to be ?

Thanks

Hint:

Sketch the circle

Think of what I've put in bold.

I still don't understand
So the domain is the set of points in that disk, but I don't know how to relate that info to the range

The book mentions
Since z is a positive square root, . Also, because

But from finding the domain, I thought that ...
4. Try squaring z. Looking at the RHS, what do you know about a number that has been squared? Also take the non-negativity of z into account.

Thanks, I got it now!

I have another question:

Find the Maclaurin series of
So

Wouldn't all of the derivatives for that MacLaurin series be 0 because of the in each of them?

What you've written in your sum is completely different from the function you've been asked to evaluate!

the Maclaurin series is basically the appropriate binomial series multiplied by the factor you've taken outside - can you proceed from this?

But isn't that what I did?

times the Mac Laurin series for

would give the MacLaurin series for the original function?
I think the sigma notation should have had no part in my previous post

No - your index 1/2 should be -1/2 and it should be outside the overall bracket!

Oh, that's a mistake in my typing and latex.

^-1/2

So now, wouldn't each of it's derivatives and hence each of the terms be 0 because of the in each derivative?

Have you actually tried differentiating? You'll find that as you differentiate successively the product rule gives you more and more terms - some will be zero and some will not.

Note that your original function is an odd function (i.e. f(-x) = -f(x)) so it won't have any even powers of x in its expansion.

Unless you're specifically asked to use Maclaurin, I would definitely recommend starting with the binomial series and multiplying by the factor x/2.
