    Range of a function?

    State the range of the function:
    f(x) = 3^(x+9) + 4

    I believe that the answer is:
    (-1, infinity)

    Am I correct?

    Any help is appreciated.

    No the range would be (4, \infty)

    hi
    i think for every real x your function is strictly positive,
    \forall x\in \mathbb{R},f(x)> 0.
    therefore the range is (0,+\inf).
