The same as the major axis.

Discuss how you can use the zeros of the numerator and the zeros of the denominator of a rational function to determine whether the graph lies below or above the x-axis in a specified interval?

yes

An oval, or more technically an ellipse, has a long ( major) axis and short (minor axis). If major axis length is a and minor length is b, then area, A is A = pi*a*b /4 where and so the area of half an oval is pi*a*b/8

The numerator function x2 - 4 and the denominator function x2 + 3x + 2 are both continuous functions of x for the entire x-axis. However, the quotient of these two functions is not continuous when the denominator function has the value of 0, because division by zero is not defined. The denominator function is 0 when x = -1 or -2. Therefore, the quotient function is not fully continuous over any intervals that include -1 or -2, but it is "piecewise continuous" over other intervals of the x-axis.

The major axis is the axis that cuts, or goes between the two vertices of the hyperbola. The minor axis is perpendicular to the major axis and is an axis of symmetry. If the hyperbola is defined by: x^2/a^2 - y^2/b^2=1 where x^2 is x squared. Then the major axis is 2a units long, and the minor axis is 2b units long.

All planets have an axis. Thus, the answer is no.

The standard equation for an ellipse centered at the origin is [x2/a2] +[y2/b2] = 1If a > b then the major axis is horizontal. Where b > a then the major axis is vertical. Note : If a = b then the curve is a circle.When a > b then the minor axis is of length 2b (and the major axis is of length 2a).Hope this helps as it is not clear just what your question is.
