    • Review of Previous Concepts on Rational FunctionsRational Functions p(x) A rational function can be expressed as f (x) = where p(x) q(x) and q(x) are polynomial functions. The domain of f (x) is R excluding the values where the denominator q(x) is zero. The zeros of the numerator p(x) are the zeros of the rational function f (x).

    • Review of Previous Concepts on Rational FunctionsRational Functions p(x) A rational function can be expressed as f (x) = where p(x) q(x) and q(x) are polynomial functions. The domain of f (x) is R excluding the values where the denominator q(x) is zero. The zeros of the numerator p(x) are the zeros of the rational function f (x). If f (x) is in lowest terms, the zeros of the denominator q(x) determine the vertical asymptotes of the function. Mathematics 4 () Graphing Rational Functions July 26, 2011 2 / 61
