Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Suppose you have a function \[y=f(x)\] Express x in terms of y, now find value of y for which x goes to infinity or  infinity That value of y is your horizontal asymptote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This website helped me a lot when I was learning about horizontal aymptotes. http://www.purplemath.com/modules/asymtote2.htm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Btw, your line CAN touch a horizontal aymptote. "Whereas vertical asymptotes are sacred ground, horizontal asymptotes are just useful suggestions. Whereas you can never touch a vertical asymptote, you can (and often do) touch and even cross horizontal asymptotes. Whereas vertical asymptotes indicate very specific behavior (on the graph), usually close to the origin, horizontal asymptotes indicate general behavior far off to the sides of the graph. "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a question A function is said to have a horizontal asymptote if either the limit at infinity exists or the limit at negative infinity exists. Show that each of the following functions has a horizontal asymptote by calculating the given limit. \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}10+\frac{ 3x }{ x^212x+3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the exponent on the bottom is greater than the one on the top, then it approaches zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes this is a way too, let's find the limit here \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}10+\frac{ 3x }{ x^212x+3 }\] Can you find the limit?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because eventually, the number on the bottom will become HUGEEEEE compared to the top. And a number / a hugeeeeeeeee number is close to zero, a veryy small decimal!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, thsnk you potterssheep. :) how do i find limit?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}10+\frac{ 3x }{ x^212x+3 }\] First divide the numerator and denominator by x \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}10+\frac{ 3\frac x x }{ \frac{x^2}{x}12\frac x x +\frac 3 x}\] We'll get \[\lim_{x\to \infty} 10+\frac 3 {x12+\frac 3 x }\] 3/x =0 so we get \[\lim_{x\to \infty} 10+\frac 3 {x12}\] as \(x\to \infty\) we get \\[10+\frac 3 \infty\] \[=10+0=>10\] so that's the limit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[x12\] \[\infty12\] Infinity is a very big no. subtracting 12 won't change it \[\infty12 \longrightarrow \infty\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh i see thank you!! how about \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ 58x }{ 7+x }+\frac{ (6x^2+8) }{ (14x12)^2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ 58x }{ 7+x }+\frac{ (6x^2+8) }{ (14x12)^2 }\] Let's split the limits \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ 58x }{ 7+x }\] First step divide by x , numerator and denominator \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac 5 x 8}{\frac 7 x +1}\] 1/x terms will become 0, when x goes to + or  infinity. We'll get \[\frac{8}{1}\] Do you get this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Great, now the second part \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{ (6x^2+8) }{ (14x12)^2 }\] Let's expand the denominator \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{ (6x^2+8) }{ (196x^2336x+144) }\] Divide numerator and denominator by x^2, \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{ (6+\frac8{x^2}) }{ (196336\frac{x}{x^2}+\frac{144}{x^2}) }\]Can you find the limit from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x/x^2=1/x \[x\to \infty \]\[\frac 1 x \to 0, \frac 1 {x^2} \to 0\]
