f(x) - g(x)

Heres my work

(x-1) - (x+1)

x-x=0 and -1-1=-2

Answer =-2 because the x's cancel each other out.

How do i find the domain when there is no x in the answer?

**MathMate**, Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 6:57pmThe domain of a constant (-2) is ℝ.

The other way to figure it out is

the domain of f(x) is ℝ

the domain of g(x) is ℝ

From the closure property of subtraction of real numbers, the domain of f(x)-g(x) is also ℝ.

**MathMate**, Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 7:58pmThe symbol means all real numbers, or all numbers between -∞ to +∞ (negative infinity to positive infinity).

It is written as a capital R, with a double stroke on the first.
