Answer:

Domain: #{x|x " is " RR}# or #(-oo,oo)#

Range: #{y|y>=2}# or #[2, oo)#

Explanation:

The domain of all quadratic functions is all real numbers, there are no restrictions on input:

#{x|x " is " RR}# or #(-oo,oo)#

The range of the parent function #y=x^2# is #0# to #oo# but your function has a shift of 2 up so the range is:

#{y|y>=2}# or #[2, oo)#

graph{x^2 +2 [-10.29, 9.71, -0.28, 9.72]}
