(-6,-5/2)and(-5/2,infinity)

the simplest way to describe the domain:

x ? -6 , x ? -5/2

For the domain, the denominator can't equal zero.

-2x - 5 = 0

-2x = 5

x = -5/2

So, x cannot equal -5/2

All x not equal to -5/2

For the numerator, you cannot have a negative inside the square root.

x + 6 >= 0

x >= -6

All x >= -6

I get

(-inf,-5/2)U[-6,infin) but it doesn't look right
