Set up a coordinate system on a sheet of graph paper. Label and scale each axis. ii. Use geometric transformations as in Examples 10, 12, and 13 to draw the graphs of each of the following ra- tional functions. Draw the vertical and horizontal asymptotes as dashed lines and label each with its equa- tion. You may use your calculator to check your solution, but you should be able to draw the rational function without the use of a calculator. iii. Use set-builder notation to describe the domain and range of the given rational function. 1. f ( x ) = − 2 /x 2. f ( x ) = 3 /x 3. f ( x ) = 1 / ( x − 4) 4. f ( x ) = 1 / ( x + 3) 5. f ( x ) = 2 / ( x − 5) 6. f ( x ) = − 3 / ( x + 6) 7. f ( x ) = 1 /x − 2 8. f ( x ) = − 1 /x + 4 9. f ( x ) = − 2 /x − 5 10. f ( x ) = 3 /x − 5 11. f ( x ) = 1 / ( x − 2) −...
