#5 More complicated rational functions:
#13 If the highest power of x on the bottom is larger than
The highest power of x on the top, then y=0 is always the
Horizontal asymptote. 3.7 Page 3 Rule: If the numerator of a rational function f(x) if of smaller
degree than the denominator (as in the previous examples, and
#1, #3), then the x-axis (line y=0) is the horizontal asymptote.
The vertical asymptotes are found in the usual way.
If both are of...
