Answer:

The domain is #x in (-oo, -3)uu (-3, +oo)#.
The range is #y in (-oo, 0) uu (0, +oo)#

Explanation:

Let #y=(7)/(x+3)#

The denominator is #!=0#

Therefore,

#x+3!=0#

#x!=-3#

The domain is #x in (-oo, -3)uu (-3, +oo)#

Also,

#y(x+3)=7#

#yx+3y=7#

#yx=4-3y#

#x=(4-3y)/(y)#

The denominator is #!=0#

Therefore

#y!=0#

The range is #y in (-oo, 0) uu (0, +oo)#

graph{(y-((7)/(x+3)))(y-0)=0 [-36.53, 36.52, -18.28, 18.27]}
