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^249 over 2x1 and x^214+49 over 12x

first one:
(x7)(x+7)/(2x1)
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

Explain why this statement is true: when simplifying rational expressions, we must cancel factors only, and not terms. Give an example using just numbers.

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) = (x4)/(x(x4)) (x4)/x(x4) the common factors cancel out and all is left is f(x)= 1/x... how do I solve this problem?
