How would you solve this problem: Slove y=1/4-1 if the domain is(-4,-2,0,2,4) Could someone please explain to me how to do this? Thank You in advance for your help!

  • Typo ??? -

    Should there be an x in that equation?
    If so, be careful about parentheses
    y = (1/4) x - 1
    y = 1/(4x) -1
    y = 1/(4x-1)
    which
    If the last, x = 1/4 is not in the domain
    If the second, x = 0 is not in the domain
    otherwise just put those 5 discrete values in for x and the five values of y are your results.
