How to Find Asymptotes & Holes?

A rational equation contains a fraction with a polynomial in both the numerator and denominator -- for example; the equation y = (x - 2) / (x^2 - x - 2). When graphing rational equations, two impor... Read More »

How to Find Asymptotes on Equations?

Often, equations will approach a line, whether that line is vertical or horizontal, but never actually cross the line, because crossing the line would result in the equation becoming undefined. Fin... Read More »
