$\lim_{x \rightarrow -5^{+}}f(x) = -\infty$

How did you get that?

7. Loser66

We don't know what f(x) is. But we know that f(x) approaches $$-\infty$$ as x approaches x =-5 from the right. That means x =-5 is a asymptote of f(x) . Dat sit.

8. Loser66

You can use either of them.

Okay thanks!

Loser66 is saying that as x gets closer to 5 from the right side, the value of y heads off to negative infinity. So that's why you have that path where the curve shoots off down below the graph

sorry -5, not +5

Thanks! I got it.
