the simplest way to describe the domain:

x ? -6 , x ? -5/2

  • Algebra-still need some help -

    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

    Is this a question?
