    Vertical Asymptotes?

    f(x)=11ln(4x-3)

    I need to find the vertical asymptote of this graph but don't even know where to start. I have a vague idea there is something to do with limits of infinity but that might be completely wrong.

    The vertical asymptote will occur when you have ln (0) as this value does not exist. Hence you need to solve the equation 4x - 3 = 0

    Ouch! They were supposed to have taught you about logarithms and their graphs before assigning conceptual questions on them!

    You'll definitely need this topic once you're in calculus, so it would be a good idea to review what logarithms are, the rules for manipulating them, and how to graph log equations.

    Have fun!

    This is all review from last year. I'm sure I learned it and am just confused now since it's been so long.
