Sketch the graph of . .

  1. Why does this graph have a vertical asymptote? What is the equation of that asymptote?

    Consider your answer to 1-26(d).

    Vertical asymptotes are lines with undefined slopes. Their equations are of the form: where is a constant.

  2. State the equation of the horizontal asymptote.

    Consider the horizontal lines that you found in problem 1-22(b).

    Horizontal asymptotes are lines with slope. Their equations are of the form: or , where is some constant.

  3. Alter so that the vertical asymptote is and the horizontal asymptote is .
