Section 1: What are the equations for these functions?
You may keep your equations with both the numerator and denominator
factored
.
A. B.C. D.E. A.B.C.D.E.

2
Section 2: Algebraic stuff
1.

not
factored, but expanded out.2.

Rewrite your answer for E in the same way.Here is an interesting thing to note: a
complicated

algebraic equation
can yield a very
simple looking

graph
.3.

(a) Write an equation for a function that is a horizontal line with a constant height of 3 but with a hole at
2
x
(b) The same as part (a) but with holes at
2
x
and
5
x
.4.

Write an equation for a graph that has x intercepts at
1
x
and
7
x
, and a hole at
3
x
.5.

Write an equation for a graph that looks like the parabola
2
y x
, but has holes at
1
x
and
3
x
.

36.

We know, from the do now, that
13
y x
is a simple example of a graph with a vertical asymptote at
3
x
.Do you think
1 1( )3 3
f x x x
will have
two
vertical asymptotes? Why or why not? (Hint: Think about whathappens when you multiply two functions together! Think about all the graphing multiplication we did!)Now graph
( )
f x
on your graphing calculator to see if your conjecture was correct.(b) How do we know that
( )
f x
will
not
have any x-intercepts?(c) Come up with the equation for a function with two vertical asymptotes, at
2
x
and
5
x
.(d) Okay, again, but now with vertical asymptotes at
2
x
and
5
x
, and a hole at
3
x
