    Finding the domain for inequality

    I think i got it now:, Also when i take a square root of a number, isn't that i should take the positive and negative root?. I understand for \sqrt{x^2}=x, because its basically \abs{x}

    Finding the domain for inequality

    Just to make it simple to solve for now, i am not going to look at case a=0 (only for now) so i tired to do this: Again my solution is wrong, i am now covering the entire number line (-inf,+inf), i feel like i am messing up basic algebra. Please help

    Solving |x-1|*|x+1|=0

    But when I try to do the same thing for |x-1|*|x+2|=3 which is: |x-1|*|x+2|=3 |x-1|=3 or |x+2|=3 x-1=3 or x+2=3 x=4 or x=1 But this solution does not make sense... please help, Thanks!

    Solving |x-1|*|x+1|=0

    Homework Statement find all the numbers x for which |x-1|*|x+1|=0 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution |x-1|*|x+1|=0 |x-1|=0 or |x+1|=0 x-1=0 or x+1=0 x=1 or x=-1 but I think there's a flaw some in my attempt solution...or the whole thing is a flaw.. any help...

    Great web resource for math and more that I just found

    Hi, I only used Khan Academy videos for Linear Algebra (even though i knew about them long before) because my prof puts up so we could see it before our linear algebra lecture. The videos are great. I am surprised you guys haven't heard of Khan Academy. cheers! p.s I'm sorry that the answer to...

    Help with Michael Spivak's fourth edition calculus book

    I am a computer science student.The only proofs I have done is trigonometric proofs, when you show one side is equal to the other side. I have done high school calculus and functions, I know them well. Spivak's kind of math is the kind of math I want to learn, because it's no longer just...
