range of g(x) >1
what is its domain?
[the answer is x > 2]
any pointers as to how to get to the answers? i tried substituting g(x) for 1 but that gives 7 = 0

If x = 2 then we have 0 as the denominator which would not be defined and therefore not every element of the set A would be mapped to exactly one element of set B. because of this x >2

Since the range is greater than 1, the function must always take a positive value. This rules out , the values for which the denominator is negative and the numerator is non-negative. Also is not possible since as Core said the denominator is 0.
Now think about the other possible values of x (for which the function is positive). There are two cases: and . Is for these values?
