Im not really sure what you mean by that @Jonask could you walk me through it

the green line and the blue line are your asymptotes 'lines that the graph can never touch'

so what is their equation

JonaskBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
i mean what is the equation of the green and the blue line

JonaskBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes you got it so this values are your p and q so i can write x=p=2 y=q=5

so f(x) = a/(x+2) +5

JonaskBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes you are on the right track now find a by plucking in any point on the graph
 one year ago

JonaskBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes and then you are done just put a back in the fuction f(x) = a/(x+2) +5
