The Domain of a Function -possible values for x Finding a Function’s Domain -Watch for function’s that model data – real life may impose some restrictions (i.e. no negative distances) -Cannot divide by zero -Cannot take even root of a negative number EX 1: Let the function 9 14 . 0 ) ( + - = x x C , represent the millions of cars sold x years after 1990. (Because of production of the type of vehicles changed back to a focus on cars in 2004 this data is only good through the year 2003.) Find the domain of C(x).
