Sketch the graph of a function with the following properties:

  • There are local extrema at (-1, 7) and (3, 2).
  • There is a point of inflection at (1, 4).
  • The graph is concave down only when x <1.
  • The x-intercept is -4 and the y-intercept is 6.

Check the function \displaystyle g(x) = \frac{x^2 + 7x + 10}{(x -3)(x +2)} for discontinuities. Conduct appropriate tests to determine if asymptotes exist at the discontinuity values. State the equations of any asymptotes and the domain of g(x).
