    Exclamation Dealing with unknown coefficients and constants

    Hey guys! Im stuck with another graphing question.

    Question:

    The curve C has equation y= [a(x+b)] / (x-b) where a and b are positive constants. State, in terms of a and b, the coordinates of the points where C intersects the axes and the equations of the asymptotes.

    So far, I only manage to find the asymptotes. They are y=a and x=b.

    Thank you very much!!

    Hey pumbaa213.

    Hint: A y-intersection occurs when x = 0 and a x-intersection occurs when y = 0.
