Date: 11/08/96 at 16:03:33 From: Doctor Matthew Subject: Re: Positive Domains The statement: x > -2 says that for any value that it may take, x must be greater than -2. But because of the domain restriction (that of positive numbers), the answer is slightly different. The answer to this problem, x > -2 (with the domain being that of positive numbers) is the set of numbers 1,2,3,4,5,... because all these positive numbers are greater than -2. -Doctor Matthew, The Math Forum Check out our web site!
