a. Find the x-intercept(s).

b. Find the y-intercept(s).

c. Find the vertical asymptote(s) (write as an equation of a line).

d. Find the horizontal asymptote(s) (write as an equation of a line).

e. For x>4, is there a value which F(x) cannot exceed, AND/OR a value which F(x) cannot fall below? Explain your answers.

f. Find the maximum or minimum function value in the interval -4 x 4, and state whether it is a maximum or minimum value for that interval.

g. Describe what happens on the graph when x approaches infinity.

f. Is the function increasing or decreasing in the interval -3 x 3?

g. As x approaches 3 from the left, what happens to the function values?

h. As x approaches 3 from the right, what happens to the function values?

I am stumped big time. Help if you can. Thanks in advance.
