Let f be the function given by f(x)= 2x/(sqrt(x^2 +x +1))

c. Write an equation for each horizontal asymptote of the graph of f.

d. Find the range of f. Use f'(x) to justify your answer.

when x gets really big positive

this is

y = 2 (big) / sqrt(big ^2)

which is y = 2

when x gets really big negative

y = 2 (-big number) / big number

which is y = - 2

well, let's look at the derivative since they say so

[ (x^2+x+1)2 - 2x(.5)(x^2+x+1)^-.5(2x) ]/(x^2+x+1)

yuuk, whose idea was this?

I suggest going to

and put in

2 x/(x^2+x+1)^.5
