hi i got this equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y= x^2 - 2x + 1 / X^2 -x - 2

how do i sketch this finding all intercepts, and asymptotes with a gfx calculator? Please check if the steps i did below is right

what i did i factorised the equation so i got

y= (x-1)^2 / (x+1)(x-2)

ASYMPTOTES

the bottom line (x+1)(x-2) = 0 gives me the vertical asymptotes thus

x= -1 and x=2

X-Intercept

to find the x-intercept i let y=0 thus (x-1)^2

X=1

Y-Intercept Let X=0

y=-1/2

I got those values but how do i sketch the graph it looks weird on the gfx calc is this a variation of a hyperbola? i also heard you can do stuff like use polydivion and get another equation or break it up and sketch it or something like that????
