RATIONAL FUNCTIONS

a) Domain Since x2 + x – 2 ≠ 0 (x + 2)(x – 1) ≠ 0 x ≠ – 2 x ≠ 1 xe R

b) x-intercepts y-intercept

c) Tests for symmetry

Circle the correct answer.

This function is: a) even b) odd c) neither

d) Asymptotes

f (x) ( = / ≠) f(–x)

The graph (is / is not) symmetrical to the y-axis.

– f (x) ( = / ≠) f(–x)

The graph (is / is not) symmetrical to the y-axis.

Vertical asymptote at x = –2

“Hole” at

Horizontal asymptote at y = 1

Now let’s look at the one-sided limits around

- Label the x and y- intercepts with ordered pairs
- Label the “hole” with an ordered pair
- Draw in the asymptotes and write their equations
- show how the graph behaves left and right of the vertical asymptote

f (x) ( = / ≠) f(–x)

The graph (is / is not) symmetrical to the y-axis.

– f(x) =

– f(x) ( = / ≠) f(–x)

The graph (is / is not) symmetrical to the origin.

Circle the correct answer.

This function is: a) even b) odd c) neither

This graph is always ____________________

because f '(x) is always ________________

f) Concavity: This can change when the second derivative is undefined if

The graph is concave down over the interval x < 4

The graph is concave up over the interval x > 4

- Graph #1
- Using ordered pairs,
- label the x and y-intercepts,
- draw in any asymptotes and label with their equations
- show how the graph behaves left and right of the vertical asymptote

Intervals of Increase or Decrease(First Derivative Test)

Increase:x > 0

Decrease:x < 0
