    Intersection with asymptotes

    I was studying function graphing and that stuck in my mind. I've seen graphs intersecting its horizontal asymptotes. Is it possible for a function to intersect any of its asymtotes? If it is, how?

    Graphs can touch or cross non-vertical asymptotes. The verticals indicate division by zero, which is never allowed, so you can never touch or cross those.
