Answer:

#(-oo,5/7)uu(5/7,oo)#

Explanation:

The denominator of the rational expression cannot be zero as this would make it undefined. Equating the denominator to zero and solving gives the value that x cannot be.

#"solve "5-7x=0rArrx=5/7larrcolor(red)"excluded value"#

#"domain is "x in(-oo,5/7)uu(7/5,oo)#

#"note that the curved brackets " ( )" indicate that x cannot "#
#"equal these values but can equal the values between them"#
