F(x)=(x+1)/(square root(x^2+1))

I got so far...

Domain: (-infinity, infinity)

Intercepts: (0,1)and(-1,0)

Asymptotes: y=O and I don't know how to get Vertiical asymptotes?

Intervals: I can't figure out how to get f prime ?

Are these right so far?

And can someone show me how to do asymptotes, intervals increase/decrease, local extrema, concavity, and inflection points?

for vertical asymptotes, the denominator has to be zero (and the numerator not)

since √(x^2 + 1) can never be zero, there are no vertical asymptotes

for local extrema, take the first derivative and set it equal to zero, solving for x

sub that x back into the original equation to find the max/min.

for concavity and points of inflection, you will need the second derivative.

if y ' ' = 0 , you will have a point of inflection

if y ' ' > 0, the curve is concave upwards

if y ' ' < 0 , the curve is concave dowards for those x's
