Confusion

The function \(x^{cosx}\) results in \(-1/π\) when\(x=-π\) but the graph shows that the function can not be negative? Why is it so? I know it seems to be a stupid question but please help me out

Yes, \(x^{\cos x} \) is equal to \( - \frac 1\pi \) when \(x = -\pi \), but does not mean that the graph \(y = x^{\cos x} \) is defined when it's near \(x = -\pi \)?

Similarly, \(\sqrt[3]{-1} = -1\), does that mean the domain of \(y = \sqrt[3]{x} \) includes numbers like -1? Pi Han Goh · 4 months, 3 weeks ago
