Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so we're given that the graph approaches \(2\) as you go left and right extremes on x axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wasn't sure what the arrow meant. I searched but got conflicting answers. Most said that it was interchangeable with the equals sign though. Is this correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3good question, \(\to\) is read as "tends to" or "approaches"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, I think I got it, @ganeshie8. If I am right, the answer should be graph D, correct? Or am I way off?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Is the function approaching "2" as you walk right or left extremes on x axis ? dw:1435298726902:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think I have a great understanding on what extremes are, because I did think the function was approaching 2..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3whats the approximate value of function in graph D at x=10 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! approx. 1.2ish, not 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3can you guess the apprximate value at x=1000000 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3it seems the graph is approaching x axis yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's like an asymptote; always getting near the xaxis, but not quite touching it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the value at 1000000 would be very minimal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes it is almost 0, and the more extreme right you go, the more closer the function approaches 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then that narrows it down to A and B

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3In B, what does the graph approach to as you go extreme right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3looks the graph is approaching "4" as you go extreme right yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just looked at what was closer to it, distance wise near the beginning of the curve. It would get farther away from 2 as you go more extreme right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, and even A is curving slightly upwards.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wow. Thanks for tolerating me, this must have been frustrating. I'll write a testimonial for your troubles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3glad you figured out the answer finally! but trust me, it is not frustrating at all when somebody engages with you completely, asks relevant questions and tries hard to understand the concept.
