    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 don't understand how to …

    Rational Functions y = (x^2+7x-4)/(x-2) Since the degrees of both the numerator and denominator are the same, I would use the leading coefficient, and both the rational functions start with 1, so would the horizontal asymptote be 1?

    Thanks steve for a brilliant answer! Got one last one which is gobbledegook to me. Two functions f and g are defined by f:x(arrow)x^2 + 3 g:x(arrow)2x + 1 find: a) the function fg b)solve the equation f(x) = 12g^-1(x) Many Thanks!!!!
