Answer:

See explanation.

Explanation:

The domain is the largest subset of #RR# for which the formula is defined. Here the only values excluded from the domain are the solutions of

#x^2-1=0#

#x^2-1=0 => x^2=1 => x=-1 vv x=1#

So the domain is: #D = RR-{-1;1}#

If we look at the graph:

graph{x/(x^2-1) [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

we can see that the range is #RR#

Solution:

Domain: #RR-{-1;1}#

Range: #RR#
