## Part 1

In this video, we are going to graph simple rational functions.

**For example:**

Let’s first make a table listing the *x* and *y* values

x | y |

Plot the coordinate points on a coordinate plane. Note how there are no points on the x-axis.

## Part 2

In the second video, we are going to graph rational functions with transformation.

Keep the following in mind during transformation:

Add # to x | Moves Left |

Subtract # from x | Moves Right |

Add # to Function | Moves Up |

Subtract # from Function | Moves Down |

Multiply Function (Positive) | Each y-value is multiplied |

Multiply by Function (Negative) | Each y-value is multiplied, flipped over y-axis |

**For example:**

A transformation from to , each point of the latter graph will be located two units above each point of the prior graph.

A transformation from to , each point of the latter graph will be located across the x-axis compared to each point of the prior graph.
