Homework Help: Range problem

  1. Oct 9, 2005 #1
    f(x)=5^sqrt(2(x^2)-1)

    I got that range is (1, to infinity)

    Is it correct?

    What does f equal if x = -2 ?

    5^sqrt(7). If x=sqrt(2)/2, then I get F(x)=1

    Isn't x= sqrt(1/2) the lowest you can go?

    By range, do you mean the range of x-values or y-values ?

    If it's for the y-values then your range of 1 - infinity is correct.

    If it's for the x-values, then that's a bit different.

    For y values. They teach us to call x-values domain.

    That's right.
    I use domain for x-values and co-domain for y-values.
    But i've seen range used for x-values before.
