Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=5x/(x1) To get the vertical asymptote, set the denominator equal to 0 and solve for x. x  1 = 0 x = 1 which is a vertical line passing through the point (1,0) and perpendicular to the xaxis. The graph of the function does not intersect the vertical asymptote.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To get the horizontal asymptote, take the dominant term of the numerator, 5x, and divide by the dominant term of the denominator, x. 5x/x = 5 and the equation of the horizontal asymptote is y = 5.
