## jiberjiber 3 years ago What is and how do you find the y-asymptote?

1. Mertsj

Are you talking about a horizontal asymptote?

2. jiberjiber

Yes

3. SmoothMath

|dw:1334281798918:dw| That dotted line is a vertical asymptote.

4. Mertsj

If the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator then y = 0 is a horizontal asymptote.

5. Mertsj

If the degree of the numerator is equal to the degree of the denominator than divide the coefficients of the terms of highest degree. $y=\frac{a _{n}}{a _{m}}$ is the horizontal asymptote.

6. Mertsj

If the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of the denominator, then there is no horizontal asymptote.
