Objective: Determine the domain of a square root function.

Domain of a Function The domain of a real-valued function set of all real numbers for which is the ____________________ ____________________ under a is also a real number. This means the domain excludes all values that cause division by ____________________ or cause a square root symbol.

13.Determine the domain of using a calculator. Then graph without a window of using by to verify your result.
