Answer:

Domain: #(-oo,4/3]#

Range: #[2,oo)#

Explanation:

Let's start with the domain:

We know whatever we have under the radical cannot be negative, so we can set the following inequality:

#4-3x>=0#

Adding #3x# to both sides gives us

#3x<=4#

#x<=4/3# as our domain or #(-oo,4/3]# in interval notation.

What about the range?

The lowest value that this expression can take on is #2#, when the radical just evaluates to zero. Our range can be #2# or greater.

#[2,oo)# in interval notation

Hope this helps!
