# C3 functions watch

yh but what if it was not definite like (x,X) and it was something like x E R ( x is all real number)
Then, as far as C3 is concerned, you just need to start using facts of the basic functions involved.

Like, for we know that this function is valid for and the basic function here is

You should know that , hence (since replacing x with -x has no effect on the range), then mult both sides by 2 to get and finish by adding 3 to both sides hence and hence .

For a trig function, well, sine/cosine are between -1 and 1 on reals. The rest I can't be bothered to cover.

We are talking in the case of linear functions
Should've said so then. It seemed as if you were generalising, besides that, the notation wouldn't make much sense if is a decreasing function. I.e. on then by your notation

that was really helpful! thank u!!
3. Thank you so much @RDKGames, @Anonymouspsych, @Kota Dagnino for your help. I think i get it now. Thanks again!!
4. for exponential functions, things change a little.

5. The first function is the natural logarithm, the second function is the exponential function. Give me a sec i do the trig function
6. These are the classic trig functions

7. Thanks @kota Dagnino
8. No problem

Useful, thank you!

Here is another example witten another way
Careful as, let:

Then if (as you say):

As this is a decreasing function:

ohh ok. so what would the domain be for the eqn u have given?
The domain for my function would be

x∈ ℝ, x≠-1
