Domain: $[0,\infty)$
$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ The domain of the given function, $g(x)=\sqrt{x}+5 ,$ is the permissible values of $x.$ Then use a table of values to graph the function. $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Since the radicand of a radical with an even index (index equals $2$), should be nonnegative, then \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x\ge0 .\end{array} Hence, the domain is the interval $[0,\infty) .$ Use the table of values below to get the graph of the function.
