Unit 2, Activity 6, Rational Functions and their Graphs Blackline Masters, Advanced Math-Pre-Calculus Page 66 Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, Revised 2008 PART I For each of the following problems a) Find the domain. Set the denominator equal to zero and solve D ( x ) = 0. The solutions to that equation are the discontinuities of the function and not in the domain. b) Find all zeros of the function. Set the numerator equal to zero and solve N ( x ) = 0. If one or more of the solutions are also solutions to D ( x ) = 0, then that value of x represents the location of a hole in the graph. Solutions that are unique to N ( x ) = 0 represent the x -intercepts of the graph. Plot those intercepts. c) Identify any vertical and horizontal asymptotes. Draw them on the graph with a dashed line. d) Find the y -intercept (if any) by evaluating f (0). Plot that point. e) Find and plot one or two points prior to and beyond each of the vertical asymptotes. e) Graph the function Check your answer graphically using a graphing utility, and numerically, by creating a

### 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.

• 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.
