A function f has a horizontal asymptote of y = -4, a vertical asymptote of x = 3, and an x-intercept at (1,0). Part (a): Let f be of the form \(f(x) = \frac{ax+b}{x+c}\).Find an expression for f(x). Part (b): Let f be of the form \(f(x) = \frac{rx+s}{2x+t}\) .Find an expression for f(x). a,b,c,r,s,t are just variables

(a) If the horizontal asymptote is -4, then  a  = -4

If the vertical asymptote is 3, then c  = -3

And if the x intercept is (1,0), then  -4 (1) + b  = 0  ......so b  = 4

(b) If the horizontal asymptote is -4, then r = -8

If the vertical asymptote is 3.....then   2(3) + t  = 0  →   t  = -6

And if the x intercept  is (1,0), then  -8(1) + s = 0   →  s  = 8
