f(x) = | m(x - a)(x - b) | / | n(x - d) |

f(x) = | m(x - a)(x - b) | / | n(x - d) |

f(x) = | c2nx^{2} + c1nx + c0n |

Here's a graphing program that shows the behavior of a rational function made up of a second degree polynomial divided by a first degree polynomial. These polynomials are presented in factored form in the following function definition:

Below is a program that graphs the above function. A link to instructions is follows the program.

f(x) = | m(x - a)(x - b) | / | n(x - d) |

f(x) = | m(x - a)(x - b) | / | n(x - d) |

f(x) = | c2nx^{2} + c1nx + c0n |
/ | c1dx + c0d |
