When simplifying a rational fraction, why do you need to factor the numerator and the denominator? If there is a common factor in both the numerator and denominator, that factor will cancel, thus simplifying the fraction. e.g. 15/18 = (3*5)/3*6) =(3/3)*(5/6) =(1)*5/6 =5/6

**rational functions**

A rational function that passes through (0,0) and (4, 8/7) has the x-axis as a horiztonal asympotote. It also has 2 vertical asymptotes x=3, x=-3. I understand that to set it up, it is y= ax+b / (x+3)(x-3). I dont understand how to solve for a and b.
