## 1. Radical Functions Vs. Rational Functions

## 2. What is a radical function?

### 2.1. A radical function contains a radical expression with a variable in the radicand.

## 3. What is a rational function?

## 4. The graph has a numerator and denominator that are polynomials.

## 5. Rational?

## 6. Graphs:

### 6.1. .

## 7. a rational function is any function that can be defined by a rational fraction. Such that both the numerator and the denominator are polynomials.

## 8. Real World Examples

### 8.1. Rational?

8.1.1. .

8.1.2. .

8.1.2.1. Cost of living Medical Dosage Economic Production of Goods

8.1.2.1.1. Radical?

## 10. Getting started

### 10.1. Radical?

### 10.2. As you can see, the function has a radical in it.

10.2.1. This is a child idea

### 10.3. Radical and Rational Asymptotes

### 10.4. If both polynomials are the same degree, divide the coefficients of the highest degree terms. If the polynomial in the numerator is a lower degree than the denominator, the x-axis (y = 0) is the horizontal asymptote.

### 10.5. The curves approach these asymptotes but never cross them. To find the vertical asymptote(s) of a rational function, simply set the denominator equal to 0 and solve for x.

### 10.6. Radical and Rational asymptotes are the same when looking at their graphs.
