Answer:

Domain: All #x# values#< 8#; #\quad[\infty,8)#

Range: All #y# values#>0#; #\quad(0,\infty]#

Explanation:

The domain is simply the values #x#, or in this case #t#, can have that will make the function defined.

For the above function, dividing by #0# will be undefined, so #t\ne 8#.

We can express that in interval notation as #[\infty,8)#, which means the domain is all values of #t# less than #8#.


As for the range, we can plot the graph and find it from that.

Desmos

We can see the graph starts just above #0#, and continues toward #\infty# upward.

So we can express the range as #(0,\infty]#, meaning all #y>0#.
