Answer:

The domain of #y# is #RR-{-5}#
The range of #y# is #RR-{-2}#

Explanation:

As you cannot divide by #0#, #-x-5!=0#

The domain of #y# is #D_y=RR-{-5}#

To find the range, we need #f^-1(x)#

#y=2x/-x-5#

#-yx-5y=2x#

#2x+yx=-5y#

#x(y+2)=-5y#

#x=(-5y)/(y+2)#

Therefore,

#f^-1(x)=(-5x)/(x+2)#

The range of #f(x)# is the domain of #f^-1(x)#

The range of #f(x)# is #R_y=RR-{-2}#
