Remember that each polynomial must be fully factored and that you can only cancel factors; you cannot cancel terms. Read the following instructions in order and view theexample to complete this discussion:Find your two rational ex

pressions in the list below based on your first initial.Find the domain of each of the rational expressions. (Identify which values of x will make the denominator zero and thus are not allowed in the domain.)Divide your first rational expression by the second one. Write the answer in lowest terms.Find and state the common denominator between the two expressions. Build up each expression so that it has the common denominator. (Remember not to do any canceling at this point since you need those extra factors for the common denominator.)Add the two rational expressions together. Factor again if possible, and present the answer in lowest terms.Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion.

Use boldfont to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing the thought behind your math work.):Principal rootProduct ruleQuotient ruleReciprocalnth rootRefer to Inserting Math Symbolsfor guidance with formatting. Be aware that with regards to the square root symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis. For example, if we have ?12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not. Thus we must specify whether we mean it to say ?(12) + 9 or ?(12 + 9). As there is a big difference between the two, this distinction is important in your notation.Another solution is to type the letters âsqrtâ in place of the radical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical as described in the second method above. The example above would appear as either âsqrt(12) + 9â or âsqrt(12 + 9)â depending on what we needed it to say.Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

For this
assignment you will be required to do some work that will not be included in the discussion. First, you need to graph your functions so you can clearly describe the graphs in your discussion. Your graph itself is not required in your post, although the discussion of the graph is required. Make sure you have at least five points for each equation to graph.Show all math work for finding the points.Specifically mention any key points on the graphs, including intercepts, vertex, or start/end points. (Points with decimal values need not be listed, as they might be found in a square root function.Stick to integer value points.)Discuss the general shape and location of each of your graphs.State the domain and range for each of your equations. Write them in interval notation.State whether each of the equations is a function or not giving your reasons for the answer.Select one of your graphs and assume it has been shifted three units upward and four units to the left. Discuss how this transformation affects the equation by rewriting the equation to incorporate those numbers.Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion.
