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. thanks for checking my answer.
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 $\displaystyle x = -1$,
. . the function has $\displaystyle x + 1$ in the denominator.
Since $\displaystyle y = 3$ is a horizontal asymptote,
. . the function is of the form: .$\displaystyle f(x) \;= \;\frac{3x + b}{x + 1}$
. . where $\displaystyle b$ is the y-intercept (which was not given).
