Try drawing a simple graph of the equation to see where the domain lies.
Mr F says: From your note below, I assume you're suggesting that the graph of y = f(x) = 3x+4 be drawn. That being the case, it's worth noting that this graph will make it clear what dom f and ran f are. This is useful since $\displaystyle {\color{red}\text{dom} f^{-1} = \text{ran} f}$ and $\displaystyle {\color{red}\text{ran} f^{-1} = \text{dom} f}$.
Note that when Y=4, x=0
