Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Vertical asymptotes occur when the denominator is 0. So factor the denominator. Set each factor equal to 0 and find the x values that cause the factor to be 0. The vertical lines through those x values are the vertical asymptotes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example: your denominator has these factors: (x4)(x+1) If x4=0 x=4 so x=4 is a vertical asymptote. If x+1=0, x=1 so x=1 is also a vertical asymptote.
