1. a) must have (x-1) in numerator and denominator

y = (x-2)(x-1)/(x-1) = (x^2 - 3x + 1)/(x-1)

b) must have (x-k) in the denominator, and not in the numerator. degree of numerator must be less than the degree of the denominator.

y = 12(x+3)/(x-5)(x+9)

c) must have (x+2) top and bottom, and have (x-1) in the bottom

y = 3(x+5)(x+2)/(x-1)(x+2) = (3x^2 + 21x + 18)/(x^2 + x - 2)

d) must have (x+1) in the bottom and have degree of top and bottom equal, with a factor of two up top.

y = (2x-5)/(x+1)

e) top degree must be bottom degree + 1

y = 3x^3/(x^2+3)
note the bottom is never 0.
