 Question 279126: Find the domain of the functions: h(x)=ln(x^2) and g(x)=(ln x)^2 Thank you! ^o^Answer by jsmallt9(3296)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The domain is the set of possible values for x. When finding domains you start by assuming that x can be any number. Then you look for reasons to restrict the domain. Reasons to restrict a domain include:Denominators cannot allowed to become zeroArguments of logarithms cannot be allowed to be zero or negativeRadicands of even-numbered roots cannot be allowed to become negative. You have no denominators or even-numbered roots. But you do have logarithms. We must make sure the arguments stay positive. For h(x) the argument of the logarithm is x^2. x^2 is positive for all numbers except one: zero. So the domain of h(x) is all numbers except zero. For g(x) the argument of the logarithm is x. To keep the argument positive, we must keep x positive. So the domain for g(x) is .
