    you can calculate for vertical asymptote by equating y to infinity and solving for x...usually this happens in rational expressions only

    rational expressions/functions are expressions/functions with a variable in the denominator

    so vertical asymptotes will happen when there is an x in the denominator...im thinking horizontal asymptotes will happen when there is a y in the denominator

    i'll give a simple one y = 1/x you'll notice that if x = 0 then y would be undefined..you have discussed that right?

    i mean that 1/0 is undefined..you know that right?

    from my example x = 0 (a.k.a. the y-axis) is the vertical asymptote

    horizontal asymptotes will appear in 1/y = x just do the same process
