Answer:

Domain: #(-oo,-1)uu(-1,+oo)#
Range: #(-oo,+oo)#

Explanation:

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

#y# is defined for all real x except where #4x+4 =0#
i.e where #x=-1#

#:. y# is defined #forall x in RR: x!= -1#

Hence the domain of #y# is #(-oo,-1)uu(-1,+oo)#

#Lim_"x->-1 (-)" y = +oo#

and

#Lim_"x->-1 (+)" y = -oo#

Hence the range of #y# is #(-oo,+oo)#

This can be seen by the graph of #y# below.
