  • Explain in your own words what the meaning of domain      is. Also, explain why a denominator cannot be zero.
  • Find the domain for each of your two rational      expressions.
  • Write the domain of each rational expression in set      notation (as demonstrated in the example).
  • Do both of your rational expressions have excluded      values in their domains? If yes, explain why they are to be excluded from      the domains. If no, explain why no exclusions are necessary. 
  • Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words      into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your      writing. Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in      sentences describing your math work.
    • Domain 
    • Excluded value 
    • Set
    • Factor
    • Real numbers

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Is their work similar to your own? Did they use the vocabulary words correctly? Do you understand their answers?
