# domain and range watch

Announcements
1. im really confused about certain ways to get the domain of a function. how do you tell when it is a one tail or two tail domain? and when do you use the inequalities < and > or <_ and >_?

also how do you find the range?
2. The range of the function is the y-co-ordinates that the function produces.
I am not sure what you're talking about with a one-tail or two tail domain though.

has a domain of x e R (x is a real number) and a range of

The inverse function, has a domain of since you can only put positive numbers under the square root sigh, and it has a range of since you will only get a positive answer. (You can only find the inverse of a function if each value of x produces only one value of f(x), which means the function is called one to one, and so you can't have +/- before the square root sign. )
