    rational functions

    graph the function using the analysis techniques (X intercept y int. vertical asymptote horizontal asymptote) and the sign test:

    f(x)=(5x^2-10x+1)/(x-2)

    thanks!!

    "The analysis techniques" and "the sign test" are terms specific to your text. Please reply stating what these terms mean, and showing how far you have gotten, so we can know where you're needing help.

    Thank you!

    i am basically trying to find the xintercept, yintercept and vertical and horizontal asymptote of the graph and then graph it. the sign test is not necessary to do. i just dont want to have to plug in points into the equation and then graph the function.


    thanks!
