#### Answer

Domain = $\mathbb{R}\backslash\{3\}$ or $\{x\in \mathbb{R}\ |\ x\neq 3\}$

#### Work Step by Step

The domain of a real function ( a function defined on real numbers) is the set of numbers for which f(x) is defined. $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{5}{x-3}$ can be calculated for any real number, except for those yielding a zero in the denominator. $x=3$ must be excluded from the domain. Domain = $\mathbb{R}\backslash\{3\}$ or $\{x\in \mathbb{R}\ |\ x\neq 3\}$
