    Question Rational Equation Match it to the Graph?

    Help me match this graph to the correct equation? I don't know if I am doing it wrong, no equation seems to fit?

    Start by noting the horizontal and vertical asymptotes (if there are any), then look for x and y intercepts. Try listing just those and see what kind of function you have to put together to give it those properties.

    From the graph notice that y>0\text{ for }x<4 and y<0\text{ for }x>4.

    The answer is in that list.
