x2 + 6x + 8

a. Holes: b. x- intercept(s): c. y- intercept(s): d. horizontal asymptote(s): e. vertical asymptote(s): f. Domain (interval notation please): 2.) Determine the key features of the given rational functions as prompted by part a-f. Then graph on the grid provided. Make sure you draw 2 x − 3label x 2 − and y= 2 your coordinate grid. (8 pts). x − x−2 a. Holes: b. x- intercept(s): c. y- intercept(s): d. horizontal asymptote(s): e. vertical asymptote(s): f. Domain (interval notation please): 3.) Why is the domain an important thing to consider about functions?
