    Hello, kwtolley!

    Your graph isn't very accurate . . . I had to do some guessing.


    Identify the rational function whose graph is shown in the figure.
    My answer is f(x)= 3x-5 divided by x-1 but not sure.

    If the vertical asymptote is x = -1,
    . . the function has x + 1 in the denominator.

    Since y = 3 is a horizontal asymptote,
    . . the function is of the form: . f(x) \;= \;\frac{3x + b}{x + 1}
    . . where b is the y-intercept (which was not given).
