Maggie Nelson 2.6 Rational Functions Rational Functions The vertical asymptote= the zeros of D(x). Vertical Asymptotes First determine at highest degree of polynomials on top and bottom Horizontal Asymptotes A utility company burns coal to generate electricity. The cost C (in dollars) of removing p% of smoke stakes is given by Cost of Removing Pollutants 1. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree D(x) then asymptote is: N(x)

D(x) f(x)= ____ The domain of f(x) is always all real numbers except where D(x)=0 vertical asymptote:

x=2 D(x) N(x) The simplest rational function: ______ f(x)= f(x)= f(x)= 1 ___ x ** ** 1. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree of D(x)

then asymptote is: < 2. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree of D(x)

then asymptote is: = y = coefficient of highest degree of N(x) coefficient of highest degree of D(x) ____________________________________________ 3. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree of D(x)

then: y = 0 > remember to factor first... f(x)= 1 _______ x -x-6 2 f(x)= 1 __________ (x-3)(x+2) C= 80,000p __________ 100-p for 0<p<100. Graph this function. You want to require utility companies to remove 90% of the pollutants from the smoke stack emissions. It currently is only 85%. How much additional cost would the utility company incur as a result of the new law? y= 2x + 3x + x+2 __ Holes factor the numerator and denominator f(x)= x +x-2

x -x-6 2 2 _______ (x-1)(x+2)

(x+2)(x-3) __________ (x-1)

(x-3) _____ x+2=0 x=-2 set the canceled out pair equal to zero x-2 y = 0 < f(x)= x _______ x -5 2 horizontal asymptote:

y=0 ex. 2. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree

of D(x) then asymptote is: = y = coefficient of highest degree of N(x) coefficient of highest degree of D(x) ____________________________________________ ex. f(x)= 2x x -1 2 2 _____ horizontal asymptote: y=2 3. If highest degree of N(x) highest degree

of D(x) then: NO horizontal asymptote > ex. f(x)= x 3 ____ x 2 horizontal asymptote:
