Write a rational function satisfying the following criteria. vertical Asymptote: x=-1, slant asymptote: y=x+2, zero of the function: x=3
I had f(x)=x^2+3x+2/x+1,
that only works for the asymptotes and not the zero can someone please help me figure how to satisfy all three requirements

  1. f(x)=x^2+3x+2/x+1
    = (x+1)(x+2)/(x+1)

    does not have a vertical asymptote. It just has a hole at x = -1

    We want something with (x-3) on top, and (x+1) in the bottom, so

    f(x) = (x-3)/(x+1)

    has the zero and the vertical asymptote. Note that for large x, f(x) -> 1. So, we can just multiply that by (x+2) to make the slant asymptote:

    f(x) = (x-3)(x+2)/(x+1)

    Now, that has two zeros.

    If you play around some, you can get rid of the extra zero.
