**Class Work Find the real zeros by factoring. P(x) = x4 – 2x3 – 8x + 16**

Divide. Find all the zeros of the polynomial. P(x) = x3 – 2x2 + 2x – 1

2
**Sec 3.6 Rational Functions**

Objectives: To understand how to find holes, vertical, horizontal and slant asymptotes.

3
Vertical Asymptotes The line x = a is a vertical asymptote if y approaches ± as x approaches a from the left or right.

4
**Vertical Asymptotes - A rational function has a vertical asymptote at x = c when**

c is a zero of the denominator c is NOT a zero of the numerator. Ex 1. Find the vertical asymptotes.

5
Holes When a number c is both a zero of the numerator and the denominator then there is a hole at x = c. Ex 2. Find the holes of the function.

6
**Horizontal Asymptotes**

Let If n < m, then there is a horizontal asymptote at y = 0. If n = m, then there is a horizontal asymptote at where a and c are the leading coefficients of the numerator and the denominator. If n >m, then there is no horizontal asymptote, but it does have a slant asymptote.

7
**Ex 3. Find all holes and vertical and horizontal asymptotes.**

a) b) c)

8
Slant Asymptotes Remember, slant asymptotes occur when the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of the denominator. To find slant asymptotes, divide the numerator by the denominator and the quotient will give you the equation of the slant asymptote.

**Ex 4. Find all asymptotes and holes.**

a) b)
