Question 79627: really need this answer
1)Graph f(x)=(x^2 – 4)/(x – 2) using a graphing calculator. Using a standard window with the trace feature, trace the graph to x=2. What happens?
2. Why is there a “break” in the line at x=2? Why is the graph a line without a vertical asymptote at x=2? If x is “close to” 2, what is the y value “close to”?
Create a function that has either a hole, a break, or an asymptote in the graph.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! 1)Graph f(x)=(x^2 – 4)/(x – 2) using a graphing calculator. Using a standard window with the trace feature, trace the graph to x=2. What happens?
At x=2 you get an ERROR.
2. Why is there a “break” in the line at x=2?
The denominator cannot be zero; Because there is also a factor of
(x-2) in the numerator you get a “hole” in the graph.
———-
Why is the graph a line without a vertical asymptote at x=2?
If you cancel the (x-2) factor that is common to numerator and denominator
you get the function y=x+2 which graphs as a line.
———–
If x is “close to” 2, what is the y value “close to”?
y=4
———-
Create a function that has either a hole, a break, or an asymptote in the graph.
Asymptote: y=x/(x-2) will have a vertical asymptote at x=2.
Hole: y=[x^2-3x]/[x-3] will have a hole at x=3
