Complete
the
numbered
tasks.
Read
EVERYTHING.
Discuss
your
responses
with
your
partner/group
and

be
prepared
to
share
them
with
the
class.


1.
Explain
why
a
number
divided
by
zero
is
undefined:

2.
The
graph
shows
two
linear
functions,
f(x)
and
g(x).
For
each
different
x,
calculate
the
quotient
 .

g(x)
Graph
the
result
on
the
same
set
of
axes.
Use
the
table
to
help
you
if
you
wish.

3.
What
is
the
equation
of
our
new
function?

 = 


g(x)
Graph
it
in
your
calculator
to
check
that
your
equation
matches
the
graph.



 What
window
should
you
use?

4.
What
is
the
domain
(usable
x’s)
of
this
function?_____________________________________________________________

5.
What
about
the
original
graphs
f(x)
and
g(x)
restricted
the
domain
(made
a
certain
x
value

impossible)?

6.
What
about
the
original
graphs
f(x)
and
g(x)
determined
where
the
root
(x‐intercept)
of
the
new
graph

would
be?

7.
Isn’t
it
weird
that
we
can
make
a
function
out
of
linear
functions
and
get
an
impossible
x?
Yes
/
No


8.
If
we
only
had
the
equation,
and
not
the
graph,
how
could
we
find
where
these
impossible
values
of
x

are
located?

9.
I’m
going
to
need
you
to
go
ahead
and
apply
this
knowledge.


What
values
of
x
make
the
function
undefined?
Find
them
algebraically,
then
check
by
graphing
on

calculator.


4−x x +1 4
(a)



 p(x) = 
 
 
 (b)
 q(x) = 

 
 (c)
 r(x) = 2 

3x 2x − 5 x + 2x − 35
