Given G: [1,3) > R, g(x) = 5  x^3 The answer to range of this function is (22,4] How to do I get that?

The Question said that G has a domain from 1 to 3 as given from G: [1,3) so the value I can get is 1 and 2. I try subbing this value to the function but it doesnt get the answer as the book. I tried this method before and it works for another question. I am not really not sure how to go about doing this question

g(x) = 5  xÂ³, g'(x) = 3xÂ², so g(x) is strictly decreasing over [1, 3). That means we can take the range as (g(3), g(1)] = (22, 4].
