These problems just have vertical asymptotes. To find a vertical asymptote take the function at the bottom and equal it to 0. When the denominator of a function equals 0, or does not exist, you have a vertical asymptote.

Okay, thanks! When I'm finished finding the asymptotes, could you help me with graphing them? If you don't mind.

Okay, so I got: 36. x = 2, y = 0 37. x = 3, y = 0 38. x = 4, y = 1 39. x = 5, y = 1

So when you're graphing vertical asymptotes for problems 3639, all you need to do is use your xintercepts and draw a line that crosses them. a "vertical" asymptote will intersect only one xvalue and it means that the function will come really close to that point but it will never cross it.

welfor part b, i believe the intensity of the light wouldnt be as strong, considering you're further away from the light bulb.
