    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}f(x)= \infty\]

    as x gets closer to 0, the value of f(x) (basically y) is getting larger and larger towards positive infinity

    How would you graph infinity?

    there is no one set way to graph it. Just as long as you get the general idea, you should be fine

    you can't graph infinity since it goes on forever

    here is one common way to draw out what I wrote above |dw:1440109371513:dw|

    the arrows indicate that the graph goes on forever in that direction. It never actually crosses x = 0

    The graph of 1/(x^2) is one example

    yeah just draw a general graph. It doesn't have to be of a specific function

    So pretty much any function is fine? Linear exponential radical etc.?

    as long as it fits the drawing I drew above

    linear won't work because straight lines don't fit that shape (in the drawing)
