    when x = 9, function is vertical y--->oo
    when x is large negative or positive then y = 1
    TRY NUMBERS!

    b
    dy/dx = [2x(x-9)^2 - x^2(2)]/(x-9)^4

    = [2x^3 -38x^2 + 162 x]/(x-9)^2
    the bottom is always +
    so the top is the whole thing
    if + then slope up, if - then slope down
    turns out top is divisible by (x-9) so easier than it looks
    Find zeros
    oh well, use algorithm
