Answer:

The domain is: #D=(2;+oo)#. See explanation.

Explanation:

The domain of a function is the biggest subset of real numbers set for which the value of function is defined.

Here we have to assume that #x-2>0# because logarythm is only defined for positive numbers. So we get:

#x-2>0#

#x>2#

If we write this set as an interval we get: #x in (2;+oo)#
