Hint: The domain of a function is a set of all possible inputs for a function under certain restrictions. In this case, the given restriction is that both $x$ and $y$ belong to a set of whole numbers. These whole numbers can only be a pair of digits whose squares add up to give $25$ . This provides us with the scope for another restriction: that both digits have to be less than or equal to 5 for the given restriction to be feasible.
The range of a function is the set of all output values of a function.

Complete step by step solution:To find the domain and range of such a function, we have to find the list of ordered pairs $(x,y)$ that satisfy the given equation. For the sum to be $25$ there are only two possibly pairings whose squares can add up to give that;
1.$(5,0)$ and $(0,5)$ is the first pairing that satisfies the given equation;
$\Rightarrow {x^2} + {y^2} = 25$
$\Rightarrow {5^2} + {0^2} = 25$
And
$\Rightarrow {0^2} + {5^2} = 25$
So in this case the two values for domain are $\{ 0,5\}$ and the values for range are also $\{ 0,5\}$

2.$(3,4)$ and $(4,3)$ is the second pairing that satisfies the given equation. This is also the known as the Pythagorean triplet $\{ 3,4,5\}$ ;
$\Rightarrow {x^2} + {y^2} = 25$
$\Rightarrow {3^2} + {4^2} = 25$
$\Rightarrow 9 + 16 = 25$
And
$\Rightarrow {4^2} + {3^2} = 25$
$\Rightarrow 16 + 9 = 25$
So in this case the two values for domain are $\{ 3,4\}$ and the values for range are also $\{ 3,4\}$

Therefore the values that satisfy the function of $x$ are $\{ 0,3,4,5\}$ . These are the values of the domain.
The values that are the set of outputs of the function or $y$ are $\{ 0,3,4,5\}$ . These are the values of the range.

Note:
In these questions, we need to keep the restrictions in mind before we decide which numbers to use for domain and range. Remember that very few pairs are possible with a square this small so the domain and range are not that big.
