# Thread: Find the vertical asymptotes

1. ## Find the vertical asymptotes

Find the vertical asymptotes (if any) of the graph of the function. (Use n as an arbitrary integer if necessary. If an answer does not exist, enter DNE.)

f(x) = 3/x^2

0 is not the answer? why?

edit: so sorry, the answer is x=0, i don't know i have to type the "x="

2. ## Re: Find the vertical asymptotes

Because limF(x) = infinity when x goes to 0 so the y-axis ( x = 0) is the vertical asymptote of this function.
it is simple.

Yes, it is simple. But the original question what "why is 0 NOT the answer!" And should have been "why does this machine not accept 0 as the answer".
