Rules and Properties Horizontal Asymptote 8.2 Rational Functions and Their Graphs If degree of P < degree of Q, then the horizontal asymptote of R is y = 0. R(x) = is a rational function; P and Q are polynomials P Q If degree of P = degree of Q and a and b are the leading coefficients of P and Q, then the horizontal asymptote of R is y =. a b

Rules and Properties Hole in the Graph 8.2 Rational Functions and Their Graphs In a rational function R, if x – b is a factor of the numerator and the denominator, there is a hole in the graph of R when x = b (unless x = b is a vertical asymptote).
