Guidelines for Analyzing the Graph of a Function Determine the domain and range of the function. Determine the intercepts and asymptotes of the graph. Locate the x-values for which f ’(x) and f ’’(x) are either zero or undefined. Use the results to determine relative extrema and points of inflection.

Unformatted text preview: asymptote if the degree of the numerator exceeds the degree of the denominator by 1. To find the slant asymptote, use long division to rewrite the function. (Ex. 2 pg. 198) In general, a polynomial function of degree n can have at most n 1 relative extrema, and at most n 2 points of inflection.
