No, but it would be quite straightforward if you used it.

okay, well that sounds like there's a particular way you're supposed to do it. What class is it?

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Is it an algebra class or something? And does it ask you to complete a series of 4 steps?

I say again, just to clarify... you're looking for the range of the function? Which means all of the possible values it could take? Or you're looking for the remainder of the fraction once you've divided?

lets say, \(\frac {3x^22x1}{x^2+x+2} = k \) => \(3x^22x1 = k(x^2+x+2)\) \((3k)x^2 + (2k)x + (12k) = 0\)

Thank you veryyyy much!!

since, x is real, \(b^2  4ac >= 0 \) => \((2+k)^2  4(k3)(1+2k) >= 0\) \((k4)(k+4/7) >= 0\)

I like that! I've never done it that way before. @cwtan I'm somewhat surprised that this is a viable technique for you in this instance given what I read in your syllabus, but I suppose if it works it works.
