Functions, Limits and Continuity
Find the largest possible domain of each of the following functions: x2 1 2x , (b) y = f ( x) = 25 x 2 , (c) ( x) = (a) y = f ( x) = 2 x 1 x 4x 5
Solution: (a) x 2 4 x 5 = ( x 5)(

Complex Numbers As early as 250 A.D., Greek algebraist, Diophantus, attempts to solve quadratic equations of the form ax 2 + bx + c = 0 . He accepts only positive rational roots and ignores all others. He rejects; equations such as x 2 + a 2 = 0 as i
