Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I long divide this to find the vertical asymptote of the function and the range ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that you can divide in parts so that (3x1)/x is the same as (3x/x)  (1/x). The 3x/x can be simplified to 3. When you graph this function, it is just 1/x shifted up 3 spaces. For example if x = 1, y = 3 + 1/1 = 4. As for the asymptote, it is at x = 0 because 1/x is not defined when x = 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(long division is for horizontal or slant asymptotes, not vertical asymptotes, but yeah, that's a way to do it.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Vertical asymptotes are where the denominator is equal to zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you meant as your function, \[\large \frac{3x1}{x}\] Then the vertical asymptote is at x=0. You only use long division to find slant asymptotes.
