Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[((x1)(x2))/((x1)(x+1))\] \[(x2)/(x+1)\] you have vertical asymptote at x=1 horizontal asymptotes at negative infinity and positive infinity y=1 is your horizontal asymptote for both infinities x=1 is your only vertical one because you canceled out the (x1) factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you take limit as x approaches infinity and negative infinity. when you do that, you get 1. limit x approaches negative infinity = limit x approaches infinity =1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you always do that to find the horizontal asymtote ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea. horizontal retricemptotes describe the behavior of the graph as x increases

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@josiahh Doing it algebraically I'm not so good with limits So can you show me algebraically how the limit = 1 please?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you are taking limits at infinity, you look at the degree of the polynomials in the denominator and the numerator
