Comparison Paper
In mathematics, there are many branches of functions. You have Inverse, Linear, Quadratic, Cubic, Periodic, Monotonic, etc. In this paper we will cover Reciprocal and Rational Functions. Both can be plotted on a graph, both have asymptotes, and both have discontinuities. But just because they have a few similarities doesn’t mean that they are all the same. In this paper we will compare and contrast the two functions.

A rational function has the definition of, “Any function which can be written as the ratio of two polynomial functions.” Any time that the denominator is undefined, that means the function is undefined. Since a rational function is set up in a fraction, if the same term is in the numerator and the denominator then those two will “cancel” each other out. When two terms cancel each other out, a hole will occur at the point that both terms cancelled out at. The vertical asymptote is found by the term in the denominator. If you only have (x-2) in the denominator then you will have a vertical asymptote at 2 on the x axis, going vertical. It will be 2 because in the function the vertical asymptote is automatically given a negative sign, so the opposite of whatever your term is. The horizontal is found by any number outside of the fraction.

A reciprocal function can be defined as, “A function that models inverse variations.” Reciprocal functions can be graphed. They usually start at the top or sides of a graph; go inwards towards the origin, then bend past it and leave through the same quadrant that they entered. The x-axis is the horizontal asymptote, and the y-axis is the vertical asymptote. The vertical asymptote is found the same way as the rational function asymptote. As is the horizontal asymptote.

For both the Reciprocal and Rational Functions, you find the asymptotes the same way. You use the same formula, which is y=a/-x-h+k. The vertical asymptote is the opposite value because of the negative sign in the equation. The...

...and weight.And as if there is not enough comparison in the world, Schools compares our result to place us in a particular class.
But normally we are quite silent about this matter probably because we feel dissapointed with the unwelcome comparison.And so we refuse to speak up and defend ourselves, but inside we are silently fuming over the unkind remarks.
There is No Need To Compare
Personally, I believe that there is NO NEED for any comparison because...

...Media Comparison Paper
Since we have had to make choices and distinguish between one thing and another all of our lives, most of us like to see how others make their decisions. We especially appreciate this strategy if it helps us or informs us in some way. This paper is based on the media of comparing a newspaper ad to the internet ad.
When you asked us to write a 'Compare and Contrast' paper, I did not exactly know what you meant. After researching both concepts I learned...

...compare-and-contrast essay typically includes these elements: two or more subjects that have something in common; a main idea that enables readers to make a decision or to better understand the subjects; a balanced, parallel display of similarities (comparison) and differences (contrast); and the use of either point-by-point or subject-by-subject organization.
MAIN IDEA
A compare-and-contrast essay aims to help the reader either decide between items or understand the items...

...direct comparison
• You don’t need to write an introduction, so don’t. Leave blank space to come back and write one if you have extra time.
POINT 4 - Direct Comparisons
• 1st Sentence for each body paragraph should be a comparative (a direct comparison sentence)
o Remember you must make Direct Comparisons, (apples to apples) so make it very clear to the reader your comparing in your sentence
▪ Use linking comparative...
