It would have been better if you had posted an example of the functions 
and the Mathematica command you are using.

You could start by checking Assuming [1, 2], Assumptions [3], Elements 
[4], and also the FAQ "How do I declare variables to have certain 
properties such as Real, Integer, or Positive?" [5].
