Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

#y = -0.566021616(x-6)^6 +3.7#

#x# can take any value, so the domain is all real numbers.

When #x=6#, #(x-6)^6=0#, and #y = 3.7#.

When #x ≠ 6#, #(x-6)^6# is a positive number, and #-0.566021616(x-6)^6# is a negative number.

So #3.7# is the maximum value of # y = -0.566021616(x-6)^6 +3.7#.

The range is all real numbers less than or equal to #3.7#.
