Finding the equation of a function if

  1. Dec 22, 2006 #1
    I am trying to find a function with the following info:

    1. Horizontal asymptote at 'a' where a > 0.
    2. Function passes through origin (0,0).

    is it even possible to find the equation of this function with this info?!

    Any help is appreciated...

    Really? Because it is impossible: there are infinitely many such functions.

    You can, of course, find the "simplest" rational function having those properties. Was that the problem?
