3/5 + 3/4 round each fraction and estimate the sum. add the two fraction using a common denominator and then round the result. which estimate is closer to the actual answer.

**advance functions gr12**

use the asymptotes and intercepts to make a quick sketch of the function f(x)= x-2 (numerator) x+4(denominator) and its reciprocal f^r = x+4 (numerator) x-2 (denominator) on the same set of axes. b) describe the symmetry in the graphs in part a) c) determine the intervals of ...

[x^5(-3)(x^2+1)^-4(2x)]-(x^2+1)^-3(5)x^4] / (x^5)^2 Can someone show my how to simplify this, step by step? So far I got that the denominator should be x^10 because of the exponents, and (x^2+1)^-4 could be simplified as [(x+1)(x-1)]/4, likewise with (x^2+1)^-3, except the ...

**horizontal asymptotes**

find the HAs of y = (x-9) / sqr(4x^2 + 3x+ 2) What happens to y as x goes to +/- infinity? Specifically, is y approaching some limit from above or below? ?? I see your question was to just find the horizontal asymptotes and not to evaluate the function's approach to them. The ...

-3/[(5/x)+y] Can someone please tell me how one goes about simplifying this? Multiply numerator and denominator by x. would the answer be -3x/5+y? No. YOu forgot to multpy the y by x, it would have an xy in the denominator. gotcha thanks
