# Math Help - Family of functions

1. ## Family of functions

quick questions, how would i find the vertical asymptotes of

r(x) = 1/(a-(x-b)^2)

thanks for the help

2. mathlete,

I believe you find the values of x that makes the denominator zero. Write back if you need more.

Best,

For what value(s) of x does the denominator equal zero?
