What does

*y*approach as? What doesapproach as? Describe how your answer can be predicted from the given equation.The graph appears to be the linear function

, with a hole at. Just like the graph of

, this function will go up () as we move to the right ()What does

*y*approach as(from the left)? What does approach as^{ }(from the right)? Describe how your answer can be predicted from the given equation. Refer to the hint in part (a). As the graph approaches the hole from the left (

), what-value does it approach
