Consider the graph at right. 

Increasing curve, opening downward, in first & fourth quadrants, coming from negative infinity on right side of, x = 2, the vertical asymptote, Curve passes through the point (3, comma 0), and continues to increase slowly.

  1. What is the parent for this function?

  2. What is the equation of the vertical asymptote?

    Where does the vertical asymptote cross the -axis?

  3. Write a possible equation for this graph.

    How is the graph shifted?

    This equation is of the form . Notice that the point () is on the graph. Use this point to determine the base.
