    domain of sine is all real numbers

    range of sine is \([-1,1]\) so range of -3 sine is \([-3,3]\) no algebra needed for that one

    oh i didn't see the \(+1\) out at the end. adjust by adding one to get range of \([-2,4]\)

    How do I find the domain of the sine equation?

    domain of sine is all real numbers, so unless there is some restriction inside, there is no restriction

    domain of \(2x^4-5\) is all reals, so no worries here

    Okay... What about the second one? I know that the denominator cant equal 0, but what about range??

    for range find the range of \[\frac{x-2}{x+1}\] and then exclude what you would get if \(x=1\)

    since in the original function you know \(x\neq 1\)

    this thing can never be 1 because a fraction is only one if the numerator and denominator are equal, and in this case they are not

    other than that, it is all real numbers. so you have only to exclude two values from the range. it cannot be 1 and it cannot be \[\frac{1-2}{1+1}=-\frac{1}{2}\] because you are not allowed to evaluate at \(x=1\)

    if you want some more math to do to make your teacher happy, solve for \(x\) in \[y=\frac{x-2}{x+1}\]

    or switch \(x\) and \(y\) and solve for \(y\), either way will do it can you do that algebra?
