A) Vertical and horizontal asymptotes(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

B) Where it increases and decreases

C) Local Min and Local Max

D) Concavity and Inflection Pts

F(x) = x^2\(x-2)^2

A) Vertical Asymptote x = 2? Any Horizontal??

B) I am a little confused because its a fraction? I know you take the derivative and set it to zero. So would the critical # be -4x=0 so x = 4??

C) Local min and Max are confusing me also because of the fraction. I can do it with a linear function

D)?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
