If \(f(x) =(x + \sqrt{3})^4\), what is the range of the function f(x)?

(A)\(\sqrt{3} < f(x) < 4\)

(B) f(x) >= 0

(C) f(x) < 0

(D) \(f(x) \neq{0}\)

Can someone please provide an explaination to this one?

f(x) equals to the even (4th) power of some number, thus it cannot be less than 0.
If \(x = - \sqrt{3}\), then f(x) = 0.

So, f(x) >= 0.

Answer: B.

MIN (F(X)) is when X= - \(\sqrt{3}\) So MIN(F(X)) = 0
MAX(F(X)) --> no boundary
(B) f(x) >= 0 is the answer
