Rev.S08 8 Let’s Look at an Example http://faculty. valenciacc . edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Use the graph of to sketch the graph of Include all asymptotes in your graph. Write g ( x ) in terms of f ( x ). Solution g ( x ) is a translation of f ( x ) left one unit and down 2 units . The vertical asymptote is x = 1 The horizontal asymptote is y = 2 g ( x ) = f ( x + 1) 2 2 1 ( ) f x x = 2 1 ( ) 2. ( 1) g x x = ! +

Rev.S08 10 More Examples http://faculty. valenciacc . edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. For each rational function , determine any horizontal or vertical asymptotes. a) b) c) Solution To identify horizontal asymptote, look at the leading coefficient of the highest power term in both numerator and denominator. a) Horizontal Asymptote : If the Degree of numerator equals the degree of the denominator, y = a/b is asymptote, so y = 2/4 = 1/2 To identify vertical asymptote, set the denominator to 0.
