What values for x must be excluded in the following fraction?

x+5/-1

## Of course, I'd be happy to help you understand how to find the excluded values for the fraction (x + 5) / (-1).

To determine the values of x that must be excluded, we need to look for any values of x that would cause a problem in the fraction. In this case, we are interested in identifying values of x that would make the denominator of the fraction equal to zero.

In our fraction, the denominator is -1. For a fraction to be defined and not result in an error, the denominator cannot be zero. If we solve the equation -1 = 0 for x, we find that x = 0.

Therefore, the value x = 0 must be excluded from the domain because it would make the denominator zero and result in an undefined fraction.

In summary, the excluded value for the fraction (x + 5) / (-1) is x = 0.
