Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I plugged it into my calculator and got the table

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1notice g(x)=1/(x10) is just going to have the va moved over to the right 10 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since x10=0 gives us x=10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1433571854644:dw do you see the invisible vertical line that the function is getting closer to find the right and left?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that is the asymptote?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and don't forget 10 is not an equation you would need to write x=10 this is the vertical line that I drew in the above picture

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now it looks like your question asks us to find the limit since plugin in 10 gives 1/0 we know we have either inf or inf and we definitely know we have a va at x=10 since we get something/0 where the something isn't 0 when pluggin in 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to determine if we have inf or inf look at the y values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well they actually call it negative large or negative infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, is there anything else i need to answer this question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if wanted the right limit that would look like this in pretty math symbols \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 1^+}\frac{1}{x10}\] dw:1433572155988:dw so from the right you would say the y's approach positive infinity or just infinity anyways answer to your question is do you do a table because it ask for a table too not just a graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1433572247181:dw chose some values of x and found out what the corresponding y value is like you can probably use the one's in the table or maybe use x=5 x=9 x=9.05 x=9.99 x=9.99 you are just trying to figure out what is happening to 1/(x10) for those x's
