f(x)= the square root of x plus 3

x + 3 is under the radical.

ooh yes, I remember that now.

now.... how do I find the range?

here's the dilemma... when you find the inverse of that function, the domain of that should be the range of the original function, so y= x^2 - 3

the range for that would be all real numbers, but when graphed, it looks like an asymptote approaching 0. how would that work?

the range is all the possible outputs of the function. sqrt(x+3) can result in any positive number as long as x > -3. so

f(x) >= 0
