Consider the following sets of rational functions. af(x)=ax for a={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4}, h(xc)=1xc​ for c=[−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4], h(x−c)=1x−c for c=[−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4], g(bx)=1bx for b={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4} for b={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4}, k(x)+d=1x+d for d={−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4} for d={−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4}.
c. Choose two functions from any set. Find the slope between consecutive points on the graphs.

In general, how does one determine if a rational function is regular? I have the particular problem of determining in which points of the circle V(x2+y21)A2 is the rational function α=y1x regular?

"A rational function is defined as the quotient of polynomials in which the denominator has a degree of at least 1"
If we are talking merely about x, then I get the concept. A rational function f(x) could be written as "p(x)q(x), where q(x)0."
The issue that I'm having is that of talking about rational functions of n variables. For instance, what would be the meaning of 'f(x,y) is a rational function of x & y?

Suppose you have a rational function, of the form H ( x ) = B ( x ) A ( x ) . It's differential is of the form H ( x ) = ( B ( x ) A ( x ) B ( x ) A ( x ) ) ( A ( x ) ) 2 . It is trivial to prove that, if k is a root of B ( x ) or A ( x ) with rank r, r 2, then k is also a root of H ( x )'s numerator, B ( x ) A ( x ) B ( x ) A ( x ), with rank at least r 1. Is there a theorem that states this exact thing?
The reason I need this is, I am going to take an exam soon, and in a specific part of the exam this observation would be very useful. But I will have to prove it by hand during the exam, and time will be very limited, so I was wondering if there is already a name for this to reference it directly and get on with it.
EDIT: Had erroneously named the desired form "polynomial fraction", instead of the right "rational function".
