made a stupid error, just a sec.

yeah range is limited...i dont how to evaluate the exact interval for range :(

5. anonymous

*know

Can you plot the two parts of the function? then combine them.|dw:1347772792991:dw| For analyzing the final result : If it's a diagonal line then yes both will go from -infinity to +infinity, IF HOWEVER it is a VERTICAL or HORIZONTAL line then your domain or range will be limited.

i want to show it algebrically if its possible !!

8. anonymous

idea: seperate f(x) into 2 functions, find the domain of the inverse of each one of the function, find the intersection of the 2 domains, that gives the range of f(x)

Range is ]0,2]. f(x) is symmetrical about x=2. I evaluated the first and second derivatives. for x<1<2 f'(x)>0 and f''(x)>0 for x<1, f'(x)>0 and f''(x)<0. behavior on other side of 2 is symmetrical. Also, evaluating the limit at -infinity, we get 0. So the graph would be something like this.|dw:1347780606499:dw| That's it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Another small test is that f(x) can't be <0 because solving it gives -1<-3 which is a contradiction.

11. anonymous

the range of f(x) is ( 0,2]

12. anonymous

to show it algebrically you need to assume $\sqrt[3]{x-1}= \alpha$ $\sqrt[3]{3-x}= \beta$ and after that you can obtain the required equations

13. anonymous

as $f(x)=y=\alpha +\beta$ so find out x in form of y and you would get the answer if you want more detailed solution then i can provide you that too
