I am trying to sketch the curve y=x+1/x Following are the steps that are generally followed. But I don’t understand one thing First I note that while as x tends to infinity, 1/x tends to 0. Then we conclude that y tends x, since 1/x tends to 0. The thing that I don’t understand is if x tends to infinity, so why don't we say y tends to infinity too.
