According to the following link, a vertical asymptotes indicate very specific behavior in the function. Can you explain what type of behavior is the author talking about?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the curve will approach a point on the graph but never actually touch it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example x^2/(x3) will approach the value of 3, but since it cannot be divided by zero it will never actually reach 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here's a picture of a vertical asymptote http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Asymptote.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in that example the curve approaches 0, but instead of the x value ever reaching 0 it keeping getting closer and closer to 0 without ever touching it while the y value continues to infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just read that horizontal asymptotes can be touched and even crossed. Whay does that happens. What are more importat? vertical or horizontal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0horizontal asymptotes can be crossed when near to the center of the graph.....and the graph continues onward it will eventually behave similarly to a vertical asymptote and no longer cross it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both are important, but vertical asymptotes may be more so

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Last question...what is the physical meaning of horizontal asymptotes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not entirely sure what that question means, but i think the answer theyre looking for is that the curve will approach a number which is the limit for the function as x goes to infinity
