This lesson presents a mathematical model of how alcohol is eliminated from the body. The mathematical focus is on graphs of rational functions with an emphasis on interpretation of horizontal and vertical asymptotes in the context of elimination of alcohol from the body.

Other mathematics involved is algebraic manipulation of the rational functions, solution of equations with rational expressions, realistic domain of a function, inverse functions, and equilibrium state of a dynamic process.
