 Graphs/214270: Okay so I have 2 questions. my first one is, how do you figure out the function of a graph that is not linear besides plugging in values for x? My second one is, how do you figure out what the end behavior of a graph is?? and what is an asymtope?1 solutions Answer 162066 by edjones(7569)   on 2009-09-18 00:49:42 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1) You have to plug them in or use a graphing calculator. . 2) Asymptote= a straight line that is closely approached but never touched by a curve. Take 1/(x+1) for example (the graph below). X can never be -1 (the vertical asymptote) because division by zero is not allowed. The end behavior of the function as x becomes very large (or very small) is that the lines get very close to the horizontal asymptote but never touch it. Note that there is a horizontal asymptote at y=0 also. . Ed . .
