    [SOLVED] horizontal / vertical asymptotes

    Find the horizontal and vertical asymptotes of the curve.



    after i factored it out and did cancellations I got x/x-6

    idk why but i got the answer wrong for both asymptotes when i set x = 0. and y = 0

    Hint: Where is \frac{x}{x-6} undefined? Where does it approach infinity? Dividing the numerator and denominator by x, we obtain

    \frac{1}{1-\frac{6}{x}}.

    What happens as x approaches \infty or -\infty?
