## lexy148 one year ago Vertical asymptotes occur at x values where a function is not defined. Explain why it makes sense that y=1x has a vertical asymptote at x=0.

$$\bf y=1x?$$

2. lexy148

y=1/x

well, what do you think? $$\bf \cfrac{1}{{\color{brown}{ x}}}\qquad {\color{brown}{ x}}=0\implies \cfrac{1}{{\color{brown}{ 0}}}$$ does it make sense it has a vertical asymptote?
