It is supposed to mean between -4 and 10, but I never remember if the end points are included in this notation.

I never used that notation, I use something like

-4 ≤ x ≤ 10 or -4 < x < 10

So it means that you are only concerned about the graph that falls within those two values of x .

Clarify from your text or your instructor whether the endpoints are included or exclude.

[-4,10] means -4<=x<=10

The square brackets mean that the limites are included in the interval.

If a limit is to be excluded, use the parentheis or turn the brackets backwards.

(-4,10] means -4 < x <=10.

]-4,10] also means -4 < x <=10
