Range of a f(x) involving floor

1. Homework Statement
I have to find the range of f(x) where:
f(x)=7*floor(x) - floor(7*x)
x is a real number.

Then I have to prove that this set of numbers is correct.


3. The Attempt at a Solution
I am still on the range part, and thus am only asking about that part at the moment. It seems to me that the range of f(x) would be (-infinity,+infinity). Is there a reason that it wouldn't be?
 
1,005
64
Sketch the graphs of g(x) = 7*floor(x) and h(x) = floor(7x) on the same paper.
 
Ah yes, back to basics for me.

Ok so it seems that all possible values of f(x) are:
-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0;

thus range of f(x) = (-6,0).

Correct?

seems I've found a classmate.

I'm not sure if you mean the last symbol or next to last, so after the equation it reads:

"is not rational"


so its not a rational number.
 
I think I have a working proof on this one now. Thanks for getting me started Slider!
 
thanks man it looks all crazy i couldnt figure it out
good luck and thanks again
