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.

Section 7.1 Introducing Rational Functions Version: Fall 2007 7.1 Solutions 1. Start with the graph of y = 1 /x in (a). Multiplying by 2 produces the equation y = 2 /x and stretches the graph vertically by a factor of 2 as shown in (b). Multiplying by 1 produces the equation y = 2 /x and reflects the graph of y = 2 /x in (b) over the x -axis to produce the graph of y = 2 /x in (c). Projecting all the points of the graph in (c) onto the
