### 9.3 Graphing General Rational Functions

p. 547

Yesterday, we graphed rational functions where x was to the first power only. What if x is not to the first power?

Such as:

Steps to graph when x is not to the 1st power
• Find the x-intercepts. (Set numer. =0 and solve)
• Find vertical asymptote(s). (set denom=0 and solve)
• Find horizontal asymptote. 3 cases:
• If degree of top < degree of bottom, y=0
• If degrees are =,
• If degree of top > degree of bottom, no horiz. asymp, but there will be a slant asymptote.
• 4. Make a T-chart: choose x-values on either side & between all vertical asymptotes.
• Graph asymptotes, pts., and connect with curves.
• Check solutions on calculator.
Ex: Graph. State domain & range.
• x-intercepts: x=0
• vert. asymp.: x2+1=0

x2= -1

No vert asymp

• horiz. asymp:

1<2

(deg. of top < deg. of bottom)

y=0

4. x y

-2 -.4

-1 -.5

0 0

1 .5

2 .4

(No real solns.)

Ex: Graph, then state the domain and range.
• x-intercepts:

3x2=0

x2=0

x=0

• Vert asymp:

x2-4=0

x2=4

x=2 & x=-2

• Horiz asymp:

(degrees are =)

y=3/1 or y=3

• x y
• 4 4
• 3 5.4
• 1 -1
• 0 0
• -1 -1
• -3 5.4
• -4 4

On right of x=2 asymp.

Between the 2 asymp.

On left of x=-2 asymp.

Domain: all real #’s except -2 & 2

Range: all real #’s except 0<y<3

Ex: Graph, then state the domain & range.
• x-intercepts:

x2-3x-4=0

(x-4)(x+1)=0

x-4=0 x+1=0

x=4 x=-1

• Vert asymp:

x-2=0

x=2

• Horiz asymp: 2>1

(deg. of top > deg. of bottom)

no horizontal asymptotes, but there is a slant!

• x y
• -1 0
• 0 2
• 1 6
• 3 -4
• 4 0

Left of x=2 asymp.

Right of x=2 asymp.

Slant asymptotes
• Do synthetic division (if possible); if not, do long division!
• The resulting polynomial (ignoring the remainder) is the equation of the slant asymptote.

In our example:

2 1 -3 -4

1 -1 -6

Ignore the remainder, use what is left for the equation of the slant asymptote: y=x-1

2 -2

Domain: all real #’s except 2

Range: all real #’s
