Work Step by Step

Find the x-intercept by setting $f(x)$ or $y$ to zero, then solve for $x$. $f(x) = -x+4 \\0=-x+4 \\0+x=-x+4+x \\x=4$ The x-intercept is $(4, 0)$. Find the y-intercept by setting $x=0$ then solving for $y$. $f(x)=-x+4 \\f(x) = -0+4 \\f(x)=4$ The y-intercept is $(0,4)$. Plot the intercepts and connect them using a line. The point $(2, 2)$ can be used as a check point. (Refer to the graph in the answer part above.) The graph covers all x-values and all y-values. Thus, the given function has: domain: $(-\infty, +\infty)$ range: $(-\infty, +\infty)$
