Rational Functions

Name: lim x → −∞ 10x2 f (x) = 2x −3x4 f (x) = 6x2 2 15x + 2x − 10 f ( x) = 500x + 1 12x + 30 f (x) = 6x − 2 2 x + 3x + 2 f (x) = 5x2 − 125 14 − 3x2 f (x) = 2 9x + 2x − 1 40 f (x) = x − 15 2x − 1 f (x) = 2 x − 7x + 12 10x2 − 13x + 40 f (x) = −x3 − 1 1. What do you observe? x = −100 x = −10 x=0 x = 10 x = 100 lim x→∞

2. What generalizations about limits of rational functions can you make based on your observations? Make your statements as detailed and precise as possible.

3. Choose 3 functions from the table above to describe. Be sure to include Domain, Range, regions of Increasing and Decreasing, Intercepts (x and y), Maximums, Minimums, Asymptotes and/or Holes in your description. Sketch a graph of each function and label (color code?) the parts of your description.
