    End behavior

    I have to find the zeros, vertical assymptotes and end behavior of the functions, how do i find the end behavior?

    a) f(x)=x-7
    vertical asymptote at x=0
    there are no zeros since it does not cross the x-axis

    b)g(x)=4/x8
    ver. asym. at x=0
    there are no zeros since it does not cross the x-axis

    c)h(x)=2*3x+2

    f(-1) = (-1)^{-7} = -1

    So that means...

    I'm not certain what "end behavior" is either. Can you find the definition in your text?

    Re: End behavior

    The "end behavior" is the "behavior" or what happens to the function in the limit as x goes to infinity or negative infinity.
