Let f be the function given by f(x)= 2x/(sqrt(x^2 +x +1))

c. Write an equation for each horizontal asymptote of the graph of f.
d. Find the range of f. Use f'(x) to justify your answer.

1. when x gets really big positive
this is
y = 2 (big) / sqrt(big ^2)
which is y = 2
when x gets really big negative
y = 2 (-big number) / big number
which is y = - 2

well, let's look at the derivative since they say so
[ (x^2+x+1)2 - 2x(.5)(x^2+x+1)^-.5(2x) ]/(x^2+x+1)
I suggest going to
http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/function-grapher.php
and put in
2 x/(x^2+x+1)^.5

When I solve the inquality 2x^2 - 6 < 0, I get x < + or - sqrt(3) So how do I write the solution? Is it (+sqrt(3),-sqrt(3)) or (-infinity, sqrt(3))? Why? Thanks. So would this work? abs x < ( sqrt 3 ) or - sqrt 3

I need to simply this equation, but I got stuck. h/(4-sqrt(16+h)) = y First, I multiplied (4+sqrt(16+h)/(4+sqrt(16+h) to both sides, and I ended up with h(4+sqrt(16+h)/-h. Is this correct? (I tried to graph both equations to see
