Find the domain and range for y=x^2+9.
Is the answer all real numbers? How would you enter that in interval notation? From Googling the definition of real numbers, I now understand that the infinity sign would not be included. For a continuous function you use closed brackets, but I just don't know what numbers to put into the brackets.

Is factoring something I should do here? I'm not sure.

  1. for any x, x^2 >= 0
    so, y >= 9 for all real x.
    x can, of course, be any real number.

    D: (-∞,+∞)
    R: [9,+∞)

  2. Thank you so much! That really helps. I totally forgot that the range would have to be over 9 due to the plus 9 in the equation.
