Sketch the graph of , then evaluate 

The parent graph of  is .

What does that graph look like?

Decreasing rational function, asymptotes as the axes, left curve below & left of origin, right curve above & right of origin.

What does a negative sign do to a graph?
What about and ?

Increasing rational function, asymptotes at x = 3 & y = 2, left piece above & left of asymptote intersection, right piece below & right of asymptote intersection.

Use the graph to evaluate the limit.
