Let's do another one:
|The y-intercept: Find f(0)|
|The x-intercept: numerator = 0, solve.|
|Vertical asymptotes: denominator = 0, solve|
* When this is the case, we're going to be forced to "quickie plot" a few points to nail the graph. No, this isn't being a sissy -- we'll have no choice. But, Calculus will fix this problem by telling us where the graphs are increasing and decreasing!
