Guys so I was just working on a "practice assignment" and I was having trouble with this question. Sketch the graphs of the following functions and show all asymptotes with a doted line $y=\frac{3x}{x+4}-5$

I got these answers vertical asymptote(s): $x=4$

ii)State any restrictions or non-permissible value(s)

iii) Determine coordinates of intercepts(s) I got x-intercept $(-10,0)$, y-intercept $(0,-5)$

iv)? I have no idea please help. Describe the behaviour of the function as it approaches and leaves vertical asymptotes and or point of discontinuity.

If I am reading the symbols correctly, the vetical asymptote is at $x=-4$. This would be if $y=\frac{3x}{x+4}-5$ –  André Nicolas Apr 18 '13 at 4:13
yo have an extra - behind the 5 :) –  Steven John Apr 18 '13 at 4:14
