Size:  313.5 KB not quite sure how this graph is sketched as I would like to find the range for fx. From the equation I see the it shifts to the right by 2 and since there is a factor of 3 , why isn't the asymtope at 2/3?

    Thanks

    That's a correct sketch of f(x)... what's your problem here?

    For large x, the -2 is insignificant, so you basically have \frac{25}{3x}, which tends to 0 for large (positive and negative) x.

    You have written down, which I'm going to assume for f(x) that 1<x≤9 so you need to exclude the left side of the graph as the values of x do not fall in this domain. Yes it says x is any real number but only in the domain for f(x). As 2/3 is less than 1 there is no need to draw the asymptote.
