the only thing you have to worry about in your function is division by zero

When does that happen?

When x^2 - 25 = 0

or when x^2 = 25

or when x = ± 5

so your domain is any real number, except x = ±5

which would be a)

Thank you for the explanation! My teacher really never explained it like you did. Do you teach math?
