Answer:

The domain is #x in RR-{-7}#. The range is #y in RR-{1}#

Explanation:

The function is #f(x)=(x+2)/(x+7)#

The denominator must be #!=0#

Therefore,

#x+7!=0#, #=>#, #x!=-7#

The domain is #x in RR-{-7}#

Let #y=(x+2)/(x+7)#

#y(x+7)=x+2#

#xy+7y=x+2#

#xy-x=2-7y#

#x(y-1)=2-7y#

#x=(2-7y)/(y-1)#

The denominator is #!=0#

#y-1!=0#, #=>#, #y!=1#

The range is #y in RR-{1}#
