    \[y=x \sqrt{9-x^2}\]

    I think there is an asymptote at x=0 and x=3 because that would make y=0

    they are x coordinates, so they are verticle

    x=0, x=3,x=-3 is also the x intercept right? i graph this on wolfram and it looks weird

    No, I think what your looking at is the imaginary part of the graph beyond the asymptototes

    you need to find the roots... x values in the axis that make the equation true in other words solve for x

    sorry but your are looking for asymptotes... this do not have asymptotes

    so no asymptotes? theres an inflection point at x = 0 right?
