Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for \(\color{green}{\rm Vertical~ asy.}\) set the denominator equal to zero and then solve for the variable. for\(\color{green}{\rm Horizontal ~asy.}\) focus on highest degrees ~if the highest degree of the numerator is greater than the denominator then `No horizontal asy.` \[\color{reD}{\rm N}>\color{blue}{\rm D}\] example \[\large\rm \frac{ 7x^\color{ReD}{3} +1}{ 4x^\color{blue}{2}+3 }\] ~if the highest degree of the denominator is greater than the highest degree of the numerator then `y=0` would be horizontal asy. \[\rm \color{reD}{N}<\color{blue}{\rm D}\] example:\[\large\rm \frac{ 7x^\color{red}{2}+1 }{ 4x^\color{blue}{3}+3 }\] ~if both degrees are the same then divide the leading coefficient of the numerator by the leading coefficient of the denominator \[\rm \color{red}{N}=\color{blue}{D}\] \[\large\rm \frac{ 8x^\color{reD}{3}+1 }{ 4x^\color{blue}{3}+3 }\] \[\rm \frac{ 8x^3 }{ 4x^3 } =2\] horizontal asy. =2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\rm f(x)=\frac{ (x+3)(x+4)}{ (x+2)(x+4)}\] first simplify is there anything you can cacnel out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah we can cancel out (x+4) @Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes right! so \[f(x)=\frac{ (x+3) }{ x+2}\]set the denominator equal to zero to find vertical asy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure ! so we got the vertical asymptote which is x:2, but it also asks for the hole(s) @Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ahh okay what are the factors that in common to both numerator and denominator ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0of 3 and 2 ? @Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2common factors would be hole \[\rm f(x)=\frac{ (x+3)\color{reD}{(x+4)}}{ (x+2)\color{red}{(x+4)}}\] in this question x+4 is common right so set it equal to zero x+4=0 solve for x that value would be hole
