Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cotangent is defined as cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, cot(3x) = cos(3x)/sin(3x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cot(3x) has vertical asymptotes when sin(3x) = 0 solve sin(3x) = 0 to get your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I solve that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and I am confused on how that will help find the asymptotes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well an alternative is to plug in the given choices to see whether they make sin(3x) equal to 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for example, choice A has x = 0 replace x with 0 to get... sin(3x) = sin(3*0) = sin(0) = 0 so when x = 0, the value of sin(3x) is equal to 0. All of this means x = 0 is a vertical asymptote of cot(3x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2how about x = 2pi? what do you get when you plug that value in for x?
