Can anyone help me?
Give an example of a rational function that has a horizontal asymptote at y = 0 and a vertical asymptote at, x = 2 and x = 1.
a vertical asymptote has the property that it makes the denominator go to zero a horizontal asymptote at 0 has the property that the numerator is a lesser degree than the denominator
would you agree that 2-x = 0 when x=2? and that 1-x = 0 when x=1?
So it would be something like \[\frac{ x }{ x^2 }\]
it should be something like that yes :) but more like:\[\frac{x}{(a-x)(b-x)}\] such that when x=a or x=b the bottom goes zero
so how would you find what the denominator would be if you have infinite possibilities depending on what x equals?
the bottom has to go zero when x=1 or x=2
Ohhh alright I see now! thanks :)
