Thread: How to find the vertical asymptotes?

1. How to find the vertical asymptotes?

Find the vertical asymptotes of the rational function. H(x)= 3x^2 / (x-7)(x-8)

Thanks

2. $x \neq 7,8$ therefore vertical asymptotes are $x= 7$ and $x=8$

The vertical asymptotes are generally were the function isn't defined, in your case the function is not defined when the denominator is equal to zero. i.e

$(x-7)(x-8)=0$
$x=7$
$x=8$

Those are your two vertical asymptotes.

4. you guys are great! Thanks
