Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case set the denominator to zero x+1=0, then solve for x. X = 1 if you could factor the numerator and cancel something out you would find a hole or removable discontinuity. In this case, I don't see this as possible. Therefore, the vertical asymptote is x= 1 Hope this helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The numerator can be factored since it's a convenient sum of cubes: \[x^3+1^3=(x+1)(x^2x+1)\]
