# 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? thanks!
2. just think of it like this

> has a bigger side on the left, so what ever's on the left is bigger than the right

and the lines means, it's equal to aswell as bigger/smaller
3. i think someone who knows the meaning of the word function understands that :P i think the OP is after definitions/ techniques for finding range and domains etc
4. Well say the equation is . For which values of x does the function have meaning? Well, when x(x-6) >= 0 since we can't square root a negative number. So solving the inequality we get x <= 0 , x >= 6.
