    ok, so all you have to do is draw out the function and I guess just look at it.

    notice that it starts at -5, right? it keeps going up from there. it's still moving up once it crosses the x axis.

    once it hits pi, it starts to move down instead.

    therefore your answer is [0, pi]. hopefully that helped.
