# Math Help - [SOLVED] How do you find asymptotes for these parametric equations?

1. ## [SOLVED] How do you find asymptotes for these parametric equations?

x = 10 - t^2, y = t^3 - 12t

Need both vertical and horizontal asymptotes. The book gives the following answers:

Horizontal: (6, +-16)
Vertical: (10, 0)

But I have no clue how to derive them.

Figured it out, just have to find when dy/dt and dx/dt are zero.
