a) Find dy/dx. Simplify your answer

b) Find the coordinates of any points on the graph of y where the tangent line is horizontal. Show your work.

c) Are there any points on the graph of y where the tangent line is parallel to the line y=x+7? Explain your answers.

or, you could say y = x-3+4/(x+3), so

y' = 1 - 4/(x+3)^2

so, where is y'=0? x = -1 or -5

where is y'=1? nowhere, since 1-4/(x+3)^2 < 1 for all x. Note that y has a slant asymptote with slope=1.
