if g(x)= x-2/3x and h(x)=3x+6/4, what is the domain of g(x) * h(x)?

We first multiply the g(x) and h(x). 

`g(x) * h(x) = (x - 2)/(3x) * (3x + 6)/4 = ((x - 2)*3(x + 2))/(3x*4) = ((x - 2)(x + 2))/(4x)`

Domain of g(x) is `(- oo, 0)uu (0, oo)`

Domain of h(x) is `( - oo, oo)`

Therefore, domain of g(x) * h(x) is `(- oo, 0) uu (0, oo)` ` `

Both g(x) that h(x) are defined on all Reals and so their domain:

`g(x)=x/3`    `h(x)=3x+3/2`     `f(x)=x^2+x/2=g(x) xx h(x)`  is defined to all real too, instead its domain isto be searched:


`f'(x)=0`  `rArr` `x=-1/4`

`f''(x)= 2>0`  is a min point.

`m=f(-1/4)= -1/8`

so its domani is       `-1/8 <= x < oo`
