How to Find Oblique Asymptotes?

Answer When graphing functions, it is not unusual to encounter a line that your graph might near but never touch or cross. Such a line is called an asymptote. The asymptote can be vertical, horizontal or ... 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 »

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 Equations of Asymptotes From Graphs?

Asymptotes are lines that a graph approaches as either x or y approaches infinity. For instance, as y approaches infinity, x may grow closer and closer to 0 by infinitesimal amounts. In this case, ... Read More »

How to Find Asymptotes of Rational Functions?

A rational function is a quotient of any two polynomial functions. It is expressed in the form p(x) / q(x) where p(x) and q(x) are polynomial functions of x. The graph of a rational function is dis... Read More »
