Section 7.1 Introducing Rational Functions 615 Version: Fall 2007 7.1 Exercises In Exercises 1 - 14 , perform each of the following tasks for the given rational func- tion. i. 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) 3 Copyrighted material.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
