1. What does the graph of this look like? You should be able to figure out quickly that it's ALWAYS increasing. Why? Look at f'(x)
Vertical asymptote: Is there even any x values that f(x) cannot have (i.e. lead to a division of 0 or anything like that?)?
Horizontal asymptote: You should tell what type of graph this is and deduce if there are any. But nonetheless, what is: ?
