domain is the set of numbers you can subsitute for the input (in this case x) and for it to be allowed (dividing by zero is not allowed so if you have y=6/x then x is not allowed to be zero, it can be anything else though) ok, so from experience the x^2-4x-12 part is supposed to be all under the parenthaseeese and if so, go to part AAAAAAAAAAAAA if it isn't and only x^2 is below the fraction, then go to BBBBBBBB AAAAAAAAA [latex] y= \frac{6x+13}{x^{2}-4x-12} [/latex] so the domain must be valid one rule that we have is that you cannot divide by zero therefor we find what numbers make the denomenator zero and don't allow them x^2-4x-12=0 factor (x-6)(x+2)=0 x-6=0 x=6 x+2=0 x=-2 so since -2 and 6 make the thingummy zero, we say that domain={all real numbers except for -2 and 6} BBBBBBBBBBBBBBB [latex]y= \frac{6x-13}{x^{2}} -4x-12[/latex] so remember that you cannot divide by zero therefor you have to make sure the deomenator is not equal to zero by finding those values and restricting them from the solution set so x^2=0 squaer root both sides x=0 domain={all real numbers except for 0} so if the x^2-4x-12 is under the dividing line, then the answer is domain={all real numbers except for -2 and 6} if the x^2 only is under the dividing line then the answer is domain={all real numbers except for 0}
