    Hi
    Need help
    State range of function
    n (x)=x^2+5 for domain x>_(less than or equal to )2


    I have drawn graph
    4+5=9
    So I think that range is between 5 and 9
    n (x) is greater than 5 and less than or equal to 9

    But it's answer is n ( x ) greater or equal to 9

    Can some one explain me

    That's because you are, for some reason, thinking of x \leq 2 when the question clearly states (and you've even use the symbol for it) that x \geq 2

    OK
    You are right
    But I'm still confused about it
    As I'm thinking
    Starting point of graph is 5 and ending point is 9 so how ito can be greater than 9

    Can you please explain meName:  20170715_184458.jpg

    Why do you think it ends at 9?

    OK got it😆
    ( I am trying to relate with other question but that was different from this
    I undersood now as at 2 y value is 9 and at 3 y will be 12 so it is increasing after 9
    That's why range is greater than 9

    Thanks by the way
