Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The way I was thought to approach this type of question was to have a discussion in you head as to what would happen if you substituted numbers that were close to 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The rule for a vertical asymptote in calc is when the limit as x approaches a constant like 10, and the solution is either negative or positive infinity then there is a vertical asymptote at x=10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, a vertical asymptote can be defined if it meets the conditions I mentioned above from, at least, ONE SIDE. For example, you only need to test proxy values of x from one side (positive or negative to 10) in order to classify x=10 as a vertical asymptote.
