how do i find the domain and range of equations?
example: f(x)=ab.solute value of x3.
f(x)=square root 36x^2
g(x)=2x+2.
how would i know what the domain and range is of these. could i use a graphing calculator to tell me the domain and range??

y = │x3│
becomes y = x3 , y = x+3
clearly I can use any x I feel like and get a y value.
so the domain is the set of real numbers
A nice way to get the range is to graph both lines and use only the part above the xaxis. These two intersect at (3,0) and form a V upwards
the range is any y ≥ 0
f(x) = √(36x^2)
clearly if we use any value of x such that 6 < x < 6 we would be taking the square root of a negative, which would be undefined.
so the domain is x ≤ 6 OR x ≥ 6
the range is y ≥ 0
the last one is real easy.
in a simple way, the domain is set of all number you can use for x in your function without causing any undefined results,
the range is the set of resulting y values you get from those x's 
so what is the answer to the last one?
