What is the function specifically? There are multiple ways for different functions.

myininaya (myininaya):

f(x)=sqrt{x+1} domain is given by x+1>=0 g(x)=1/sqrt{x+1} domain is given by x+1>0

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[y=\sqrt{x+6}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well because the inside of the radical cannot be a negative, x goes from -6 to infinite, because I do not see any other restrictions

myininaya (myininaya):

you find domain by doing x+6>=0

OpenStudy (anonymous):

then I subtract 6 from both sides?

myininaya (myininaya):

yes and you will get x>=-6 which is what quantabee said
