1. f(X)=x(x-3), 0≤x≤3

Have to find the range.
Can someone explain step by step please

Start by drawing a rough sketch of the curve.

Then consider the smallest and largest values of y.

I've done that and managed to get one y value as 0 but how do I find the other
4. Find the turning point, which is when x = 3/2 and when x = 3/2 y = -2.25, so the range is -2.25<f(x)<0

It's a parabola. Find the min point and the max y values. There's your range.

You need to find the minimum point of the parabola which by symmetric is halfway between the two roots (x=0, x=3).
