find the domain of each rational expression each polunomial must be fully factored and that you can only cancel factors you can not cancel terms. x^2-49 over 2x-1 and x^2-14+49 over 1-2x

• algebra -

first one:

(x-7)(x+7)/(2x-1)

well all x are ok, except for x=1/2: division by zero is not defined.

range:
consider look at the transition of sign changes: at x=-7, x=7, and x=1/2

at x=-8, signs are -*-/- or negative
at x=-6, signs are -*+/- or positive
at x= .55, signs are -*+/+ or negative
at x=8, signs are +*+/+ or positive

so the range is from -inf to +inf

I have tried solving this problem over and over but I'm still not sure with my answer. The question is sqrt2 / 2 + sqrt2. I think the answer is 1/sqrt2 + sqrt2 because you have to cancel out the common factors.

Find the vertical asymptotes, if any, of the graph of the rational function. Show your work. f(x) = (x-4)/(x(x-4)) (x-4)/x(x-4) the common factors cancel out and all is left is f(x)= 1/x... how do I solve this problem?
