Let f be the function defined on {-3, 1} by f (x)= (x+1)/x^2+ax+b and (C) its representative curve in an orthonormal system .

Knowing that the two lines of equations x=1 and x=-3 are asymptotes to (C) calculate the values of a and b.

    Find the domains of f and f' 1, f(x) = xe^x 2. f(x) = x^(3/5) 3. f(x) = x/(x-2) TIA 1) R 2) It's the interfal from zero to infinity for f but for f' it is this inteval with zero excluded, because unlike f, f' is singular at zero.
