Write an equation for rational function with given properties.
a) a hole at x = 1
b) a vertical asymptote anywhere and a horizontal asymptote along the xaxis
c) a hole at x = 2 and a vertical asymptote at x = 1
d) a vertical asymptote at x = 1 and a horizontal asymptote at y =2
e) an oblique asymptote, but no vertical asymptote

a) must have (x1) in numerator and denominator
y = (x2)(x1)/(x1) = (x^2  3x + 1)/(x1)
b) must have (xk) in the denominator, and not in the numerator. degree of numerator must be less than the degree of the denominator.
y = 12(x+3)/(x5)(x+9)
c) must have (x+2) top and bottom, and have (x1) in the bottom
y = 3(x+5)(x+2)/(x1)(x+2) = (3x^2 + 21x + 18)/(x^2 + x  2)
d) must have (x+1) in the bottom and have degree of top and bottom equal, with a factor of two up top.
y = (2x5)/(x+1)
e) top degree must be bottom degree + 1
y = 3x^3/(x^2+3)
note the bottom is never 0. 
a) should read (x^2  3x + 2)/(x1)
c) should read (3x^2 + 21x + 30)/(x^2 + x  2) 
what is the rational equation of a function with intercepts at (8,0) and (0,0.16) and a horizontal asymptote at y=0.5 and a vertical asymptote at x=3 and a removable discontinuity at (3,1)
