I have to sketch a graph for the rational equation with all asymptotes included where are the asymptotes and what points work for drawing the graoh

F(x)=X^2-4/x^2-3x+2

Michael H.

I'm gettin vertical asymptote x=-1 and a horizontal asymptote y=2 but if that's right I should have 2 sketches my 1st set of pts. Plotted work for x=(0,.5,1,1.5) y=(-2,-1,-.5,-.2) but the other side of the graph is killing me

Ur answer is correct thanks for the help, the other guy answered a different question I since then edited, my final problem is that I accidentally edited the equation incorrectly the denominator should b x^2+3x+2...my brain is fried this is due tomorrow n with all the help I've received I can't use it cuz it doesn't apply thanks again anyways

That's an easy fix. Check to see that the correct denominator factors into (x+1)(x+2). Follow what I've written above with this change.
