1. iheartfood

|dw:1352089194181:dw|

2. iheartfood

answer choices A,B,C,D from top to bottom :)

3. Brittni0605

Choice C

4. iheartfood

why is it C?? :) can u pls explain? :)

5. Brittni0605

long run behavior would be y=x^2/x that would equal y=x

6. iheartfood

so my answer is 100% C?? y=x ??

7. jim_thompson5910

you would use either long division or synthetic division, but you wouldn't get choice C

8. iheartfood

wait so my answer ISNT C? :O

9. Brittni0605

10. Brittni0605

It is not C

11. iheartfood

okay, so whats my answer then?? :/

12. jim_thompson5910

what do you get when you use long division

13. iheartfood

idk :/

14. iheartfood

of the original equation? h(x)=..? that one?

15. jim_thompson5910

yes, but what is h(x) equal to

16. iheartfood

umm lemme solve it,,

17. jim_thompson5910

ok

19. jim_thompson5910

all we care about is the quotient (the remainder is incorrect, but that's not really important here)

20. jim_thompson5910

the quotient is what

21. iheartfood

so x-5 ?

22. iheartfood

so my answer is D. y= x-5 ??
