Answers to the matched exercies in Tutorial on Rational Functions (1) are presented.
Matched Exercise 1: Find the equation of the rational function f of the form
f(x) = 1 / (bx + c)
whose graph has a y intercept at (0 , 1/4) and has a vertical asymptote at x = 1.
Answer to Matched Exercise 1:
c = 4
b = 4
Matched Exercise 2: Find the equation of the rational function f of the form
f(x) = (ax  2 ) / (bx + c)
whose graph has ax x intercept at (1 , 0), a vertical asymptote at x = 1 and a horizontal asymptote at y = 2.
Answer to Matched Exercise 2:
a = 2
b = 1
c = 1
