Example 2 Discuss the equation (x2-1)y = 1 with regard to intercepts, symmetry, domain and range and asymptotes. Plot a graph of its Locus.

Solution :

  

       

Let    


1) Intercepts   i) y = 0 Þ No x- intercept
 ii) x = 0 Þ y = -1

2) Symmetry i) x-axis : No symmetry as -y for y changes the
                       equation.

 ii) y-axis : Symmetrical. Since -x for x does not
   change the equation.

 iii) Origin : No symmetry

3) i)     Domain ( or extent ) : All x ( x ¹ ± 1 )

   ii)    Range : All y ( g (y) ³ 0 )

  g (y) > 0 « > 0

Thus,

y

1

- ½

-1

-2

g(y)

+

undefined

The range is all y > 0 or £ -1

4) Asymptotes i) Vertical : x = ± 1

   ii) Horizontal : y = 0
