Question

# What is the graph of the function

Hint:

### A rational function is a function that is the ratio of polynomials. Any function of one variable, x, is called a rational function if, it can be represented as f(x) = , where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials such that q(x) ≠ 0.

Rational functions are of the form y = f(x)y = fx , where f(x)fx is a rational expression .

- If both the polynomials have the same degree, divide the coefficients of the leading terms. This is your asymptote.
- If the degree of the numerator is less than the denominator, then the asymptote is located at y = 0 (which is the x-axis).
- If the degree of the numerator is greater than the denominator, then there is no horizontal asymptote.

## The correct answer is: From the graph we can analyze that the vertical asymptote of the rational function is x= 4/3. and horizontal asymptote is y = (leading coefficient of numerator) / (leading coefficient of denominator) = 2/3

### 1.Find the asymptotes of the rational function, if any.

2.Draw the asymptotes as dotted lines.

3.Find the x -intercept (s) and y -intercept of the rational function, if any.

4.Find the values of y for several different values of x .

5.Plot the points and draw a smooth curve to connect the points. Make sure that the graph does not cross the vertical asymptotes.

The vertical asymptote of a rational function is x -value where the denominator of the function is zero. Equate the denominator to zero and find the value of x .

3x - 4= 0

3x = 4

x =

The vertical asymptote of the rational function is x=

We will find more points on the function and graph the function.

From the graph we can analyze that the vertical asymptote of the rational function is x= . and horizontal asymptote is

y = (leading coefficient of numerator) / (leading coefficient of denominator) =
