Summary:

For function ##f(x)=\ln x^4## the domain is x ∈ ℝ , x ≠ 0 but if I change it into ##f(x) = 4 \ln x## then the domain will be x > 0
In my opinion ##\ln x^4## and ##4 \ln x## are two same functions but I am confused why they have different domains
Main Question or Discussion Point
Should I just follow the original question? If given as ##f(x)=\ln x^4## then the domain is x ∈ ℝ , x ≠ 0 and if given as ##f(x) = 4 \ln x## the domain is x > 0? So for the determination of domain I can not change the original question from ##\ln x^4## to ##4 \ln x## or vice versa?
Thanks
