# What are the excluded values for y=x/(x+2)?

Jan 5, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We cannot divide by zero. Therefore the excluded value would be:

$x + 2 \ne 0$

Or

$x + 2 - \textcolor{red}{2} \ne 0 - \textcolor{red}{2}$

$x + 0 \ne - 2$

$x \ne - 2$

The Excluded Value Is: $- 2$
