Answer:

Domain:# (-oo, +oo)#
Range: # [4,2]#

Explanation:

#f(x) = 3-cos2x#

#f(x)# is defined #forall x in RR#

Hence, the domain of #f(x) = (-oo, +oo)#

Let #theta =2x#

#:. f(x) = 3-costheta#

The range of #cos theta =+-1#

#:.# the range of #f(x) = [3+1, 3-1] = [4,2]#

This can be see from the graph of #f(x)# below.
