#### Answer

The domain of a real function ( a function defined on real numbers) is the set of numbers for which f(x) is defined. $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{x+2}{2 }\quad$ can be calculated for any real number, so its domain is $\mathbb{R}.$ $g(x) =\displaystyle \frac{2}{x+3}$can be calculated for any real number, except the ones yielding a zero in the denominator. g is not defined for $x=-3.$ So the domain of g is not $\mathbb{R}$.
