Find all discontinuities of the given function. Also, describe the discontinuities.

f(x)= [(x-8)^2(x+3)(2x^2+3x-5)]/[(x+4)^2(2x+5)(x-3)(x^2-1)]

  • calculus -

    your expression factors to


    So the graph is discontinuous at
    x = -4, -5/2, -1, 1

    There will be asymptotes at
    x=-4 and x=-1
    and holes at x= -5/2 and x=1
