If f(x)=x^2+5x+6 and g(x)=3x+1, what is the domain of f(x)/g(x)?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

`f(x)=x^2+5x+6`

`g(x)=3x+1`

`(f(x))/(g(x)) = (x^2+5x+6)/(3x+1)`

This function `(f(x))/(g(x))` will be undefinable when `(3x+1)=0` OR `x = -1/3` .

For every other x there is no problem with `(f(x))/(g(x))` .

So the domain of `(f(x))/(g(x))` is;

`x in R-[-1/3]`
