    Graphing Functions

    How do I graph and state the range, asymptotes and intercepts for:

    g(x)=-8/x-4

    h(x)=2(x-1)squared-2

    f(x)=4/xsquared+1

    Thanks,

    H

    You need to be clearer in what you need to graph. For example the first question.

    Is it g(x)=\frac{-8}{x}-4 or g(x)=\frac{-8}{x-4} ??

    These functions will give different asymptotes, intercepts, domain etc...

    The second one, thanks.
    i.e. -8 is divided by x-4

    Well solve for x-4 \neq 0 for your vertical asymptote. Do you know the shape of this function? I suggest using a graphical calculator.
