    but if the graph is always increasing even if it's by very small increments, is it still an asymptote?

    the asymptote is horizontal ie A=0 there is no vertical asymptote

    no problem, if you drew it on an axis you would see that the line would never cross the x axis and it would grow without bound forever

    what about something liek p(t)=100(4^t) where the graph would be vertical?

    never ever ever ever ever. it would become very very steep for large values of t but it would never be completly vertical

    so is that called an asymptote because it'll never reach 0. a vertical asymptote?
