Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its a parabola , ( you can tell because one fo the variables is squared, a parabola will have either a minimum or maximum value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put 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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep!! 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes.. so, since the term containing x is squared. f(x) retains a minimum of 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hence, y has a restriction on real numbers as well!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is that you say now on range of y??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is all real numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when 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 .
