Assuming that \(f(x)\ =\ 2+\frac{20}{x-3}\) and \(g(x)\ =\ -3+\frac{32}{2x+4}\)

a.__ | |

\(y\ =\ f(x)\\~\\ y\ =\ 2+\frac{20}{x-3} \) | |

| y is undefined when x - 3 = 0 so there is a vertical asymptote at x = 3 |

\( y-2\ =\ \frac{20}{x-3}\\~\\ (x-3)(y-2)\ =\ 20\\~\\ x-3\ =\ \frac{20}{y-2}\) | |

| x is undefined when y - 2 = 0 so there is a horizontal asymptote at y = 2 |

The equations for the vertical and horizontal asymptotes of the graph of f(x) are: x = 3 and y = 2 | |

| |

\(y\ =\ g(x)\\~\\ y\ =\ -3+\frac{32}{2x+4}\) | |

| y is undefined when 2x + 4 = 0 so there is a vertical asymptote at x = -2 |

\(y+3\ =\ \frac{32}{2x+4}\\~\\ (2x+4)(y+3)\ =\ 32\\~\\ 2x+4\ =\ \frac{32}{y+3}\) | |

| x is undefined when y + 3 = 0 so there is a horizontal asymptote at y = -3 |

The equations for the vertical and horizontal asymptotes of the graph of g(x) are: x = -2 and y = -3 | |

Here is a graph: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/7zrrangdvv | |

| (Note you can hide or show f(x) or g(x) and its asymptotes by clicking the circles beside the function.) |

Graph 2 belongs to f(x) and graph 1 belongs to g(x) . | |

| |

A possible function is: \(f(x)\ =\ -3+\frac{1}{x-4}\)_ |
