BasicGraphsandAsymptotes:

For this supplement, we want to look at the transformations of the graphs of the reciprocal function, y = 1x , and the squared reciprocal

function, y = 1

x2

, which are basic rational functions. So first lets define rational functions.

Rational Functions

f (x) is a rational function,

if and only if

it can be written in the form of

P(x)

f (x) = Q(x)

where P(x) and Q(x) are polynomials.

Q(x)

is defined

when Q(x) 0.

Thus, a rational function is a function defined by a rational expression. Also as well see, any combination of transformations that has

been covered in the book when applied to the graphs of y = 1x or y = x12 will lead to another rational function. You will see the

graphing of more general rational functions in a higher math class.

Lets start with the graph of y = 1x . Keeping in mind that x 0 ,and plotting a few points will lead us to:

So, what happens as x grows to ? This case is sometimes written as x and read x approaches . Also, what about as

x - ? Lets look at the following tables.

y 1 0.1 0.01 0.001 0.0001 0.00001 0.000001

y -1 -0.1 -0.01 -0.001 -0.0001 -0.00001 -0.000001

Therefore, as x get further from 0, the y gets closer to 0. For the positive numbers, we can think of the old pie analogy. If you divide

1 pie among more and more people, each person gets less and less until each person is essentially getting no pie. Thus, as x ,

y 0 . This forms a horizontal asymptote of y = 0 , the x-axis.

The line y = k is a horizontal asymptote of y = f (x) ,

if and only if

y k as either x or x - .

Now, what happens as x 0 ? Since 0 isnt in the domain of y = 1x , we cant just plug it in, yet y = 1

x

is defined for any number

except 0, and thus, its defined immediately to the right and immediately to the left of 0. So lets look at some tables for this.

y 1 10 100 1000 10000 100000 1000000

y -1 -10 -100 -1000 -10000 -100000 -1000000

This time whether positive or negative, as x gets smaller and smaller, y gets larger and larger. Thus, as x approaches 0 from the right,

denoted x 0+ , y approaches , y . Also, as x approaches 0 from the left, denoted x 0 , y approaches - , y - . This

forms a vertical asymptote of x = 0 , the y-axis.

The line x = h is a vertical asymptote of y = f (x) ,

if and only if

either y or y - as x h from either side.

x

is never 0, there is no x-intercept. Plus, because

f (-x) = 1

-x

= - = -f (x) , the function is odd and hence symmetric about the origin.

H. A.: y = 0

Symmetric about the origin

Notice that if you only look at a calculators graph, like the one to the right of y = 1

x 2.3

+ 1.5 , it can be very

misleading. First, the calculator isnt going to graph either asymptote. So if you dont know where they are,

all you can do from the calculator is guess. Second, the graph appears to stop going up, as well as down,

near the vertical asymptote, but we know the graph continues from these points. Finally, the graph can

appear to be touching its horizontal asymptote, yet we know that these graphs dont do that. Therefore, you

have to know what is happening in the graph and not just copy from the calculator.

Graph of The Squared Reciprocal Function y = x2

No x-int.

No y-int.

V.A.: x = 0

H. A.: y = 0

Symmetric about the y-axis

( f (-x) = (-x1) 2 = 1

= f (x) )

Transformations:

Remember from the book that:

Changing y = f(x) to Changes the graph by a

y = f (x h) Horizontal Shift

y = a f (x), where a > 0 Vertical Stretch/Shrink

y = -f (x) Vertical Reflection

y = f (x) + k Vertical Shift

V.A. : x = -5

H.A. : y = 7

Note that for these graphs, you should show the asymptotes as dashed lines, if they arent on an axis, plot at least 1 point on each side

of the V.A. , and satisfy any other criterion that your instructor requires.

Example#2: Graph y = 2

(x 1)2

3 . Identify its asymptotes.

Basic Graph Horizontal Shift Right 1 Vertical stretch by factor of 2 Vertical Shift Down 3

V.A. : x = 1

H.A. : y = -3

Note that for these 2 basic graphs, the horizontal reflection isnt needed since either

1

-x

= - 1x and thus, we can treat it as a vertical reflection, or

1

(-x )2

= 1

x2

and we can drop the reflection.

3x 4

19 .

First, one way to find the horizontal shift is to make the coefficient on x be 1 by dividing the top and bottom of that fraction by 3.

7

y= 7

3x 4

19 = (7)/3

(3x 4)/3

19 = 3

x 43

19

Now, we can find the horizontal shift is right 4

3

. Thus, the vertical asymptote is x = 34 .

Alternately, you could have also found the vertical asymptote by setting the denominator with x to 0 and solving for x.

3x 4 = 0

3x = 4

x= 4

9

or - 19 . Hence, the horizontal asymptote is y = - 19 .

V.A. : x = 4

H.A. : y = - 19
