Question

The function $f$ has domain $\{x: -3< x <3, x \text{ is real}\}$ and is defined by \begin{align*} f:x\to -5-x, \qquad &(-3< x \le -1) \\ f:x\to 2x^3, \qquad &(-1< x \le 1) \\ f:x\to 5-x, \qquad &(1< x <3). \end{align*}

State the range of the function and sketch the graph of $y=f(x)$. Define the inverse relation in similar form and determine whether this inverse relation is a function.
