f(x)  =  (3x - 7) / (x + 1)

 

The denominator cannot be zero,  so we can't have   x + 1  =  0   →   x = -1

 

The domain of  f  is all values except  -1  .   (-∞ , -1) U (-1, ∞)

 

If you solve this for  x  , you will get  x =  (y - 7)/(y - 3)  .

Now we can see that  y  cannot be  3 .

 

Also...the degree of the numerator  =  the degree of the denominator,

so there is a horizontal asymptote at   y  =  3/1  =  3  .

 

So the range of  f  is all values except  3 .  (-∞ , 3) U (3, ∞)
