    its a parabola , ( you can tell because one fo the variables is squared, a parabola will have either a minimum or maximum value

    range of parabola is the range of valid y values!!

    put x=2 in the given equation you will be left with only y=2 means regardless values of x it will be y=2 now since it is Parabola which opens upward . so can you tell me what will be the range ?

    Did you find any value of x for which f(x) is undefined?

    yep!! none of the real value of x make f(x) undefined!! So all real values of x make f(x) valid!! Therefore, what do you say about the range of y?

    all real numbers

    Yes.. so, since the term containing x is squared. f(x) retains a minimum of 2

    hence, y has a restriction on real numbers as well!!

    so what is that you say now on range of y??

    so the answer is all real numbers?

    when you put x=2 you are left with y=2 this means whatever the value of x vale of y (range) will never be less than 2 .
