When you have a system of two or more equations that must be solved simultaneously, one way to do it is by graphing the equations on the same coordinate plane. This is often easier than solving the system algebraically and being able to visualize the solution is a big help in understanding it.

The curve $C$ has equation $y=\frac{{{x}^{2}}+ax+b}{x+c}$, where $a$, $b$ and $c$ are constants. The line $x=3$ is an asymptote to $C$ and the range of values that $y$ can take is given by $y\le -2$ or $y\ge 4$. Find the values of $a$, $b$ and $c$.
