Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m^21 factors to: (m1)(m+1) its called the difference of squares 2m^2m1 factors to: (2m3)(m+1) so we have: (m1)(m+1)  anything that makes the bottom a "zero" is excluded (2m3)(m+1) m=3/2 and m=1 should be illegal to use.. at m=3/2 we have a vertical asymptote; and at m=1 we have a "hole" in the graph.
