We're learning about different kinds of functions and I don't really understand the difference between rational and algebraic functions. I know that rational functions are functions that are a ratio of two polynomials, and algebraic functions are any functions that can be made...

MATH _ GRAPHING RATIONAL FUNCTIONS
When graphing rational functions, how do I know which directions the graphs go? Example, for equation y = 9/x - x, how would you graph this? Also, why is the horizontal asymptote for f(x)= 2+x / x-7 is 1 instead of 0?

I have a question about the rational function I recently posted. Would the range still be (-∞,2)U(2,∞) if the rational function is what Reiny posted "(2x^2-18)/(x^2+3x-10)." The y-intercept confuses me because its (0,1.8) and when I look at the line it passes ...
