Another question about domains and range
how would I find the range of (3x4)/(6x1) ? Without using a graph
the domain is x can't be 1/6
What is the range?

without using a graph

The range is how high or how low your graph can go
So look at what happens when you use large values of x
e.g. in your mind try x = 100 000
so you would have 299 996/599 999
For all practical purposes this is 3/6 or 1/2, even though you will never reach it.
As a matter of fact try it on your calculator you will get .49999... , in other words, less than 1/2
The larger the value of x, the closer we will get to 1/2
If we try large negative values of x
say, x = 100 000
then our calculation is 300 006/600 001
which is slightly over .5
so no value of x will produce a y equal to 1/2
so the domain is the set of all real values of y ,except y = .5
(if you try to solve
(3x4)/(6x1) = 1/2
we get
6x  8 = 6x1
8 = 1 which is false and a contradiction.
So there is no solution)
