Answer:

The domain is #x in RR# and the range is #y>=-9#.

Explanation:

For the function #y=|x|# the domain is #x in RR# and range is #y>=0#.

The function #y=|x-1|-9# is a horizontal shift of #|x|# by 1 unit to the right and a vertical shift of #|x|# by 9 units down.

Shifting left or right doesn't impact the domain since it's already all real numbers.

Shifting down 9 units changes the range from #y>=0# to #y>=-9#.

Therefore the domain of #y=|x-1|-9# is #x in RR# and the range is #y>=-9#.
