Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1These 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, thanks! When I'm finished finding the asymptotes, could you help me with graphing them? If you don't mind.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so I got: 36. x = 2, y = 0 37. x = 3, y = 0 38. x = 4, y = 1 39. x = 5, y = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 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.
