did you factor the denominator?

yeeeeees

what did you get

(x+6)(x-3)

well. what hapenns when x approaches -6 or 3?

you get strange very positive or very negative numbers, correct? blah/((0.000000000000000000001)*(0.000000000000000000001-3))=some absurdly large number, right?

those very large and very small numbers we are looking at are close to the asymptotes.

ohhhhhhhhkay

so look back at that function. whenever the denominator gets close to zero we know we will get an asymptote basically. Well, you got (x-3)(x+6) as the denominator. if x gets close to 3, or if x gets close to -6, we get asymptotes. Make sense? you should be able to visualize what's going on algebraically and geometriclly. this is really important because you will meet the same kind of reasoning further in your studies (namely, limits in calculus)

Alright I understand now, thank you.

What I did was cross canceling the numerator : (x+6) by one of the binomials, (x-6), getting 1 over (x-3) lol
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
bahahahaha... you factored it right but still crossed x-6 with x+6?

Start using wolfram alpha

or use geogebra. I really would recommend graphing those functions with geogebra

  • inkyvoyd
you will really visualize everything

okay good, because I learn visually, thank so much for all your help tonight!
