 test/259396: Finding Vertical and Horizontal asymptotes still confuse me: Find all horizontal and vertical asymptotes f(x)= x/(x-3)1 solutions Answer 190958 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-01-21 15:51:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Vertical asymptotes occur when the denominator equals zero. Look at the degree of x in the numerator and denominator. Divide numerator and denominator by x. Now as x goes to the term goes to zero and looks like So then the horizontal asymptote is . . .
 test/259315: find all horizontal and vertical asymptotes h(x)= (2x-2)/(x^2-4)1 solutions Answer 190950 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-01-21 15:24:00 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Vertical asymptotes occur when the denominator equal zero. As x becomes larger the function looks like (1/x), so the horizontal asymptote is
