    An asymptote is a line or curve that approaches a given curve arbitrarily closely, as illustrated in the above diagram. The plot above shows , which has a vertical asymptote at and a horizontal asymptote at .

    What do you mean? could you show me? cause I thought you meant the closest point the curves almost touch, but those points aren't an option. my options are : ±4 ±3

    For those Hyperbolas, the slopes will be + or - b/a where b is half the vertical dotted part where a is half the horizontal dotted part...
