Re:
I am totally lost on these two homework problems. I've been trying them for hours, but just continue to receive the wrong answer.
Problem 1: Moved to another thread.
Problem 2: Determine all vertical & horizontal asymptotes of the function, and graph.
f(x) = (3X^2 - 5) / (X-2)(X+3)
If someone could help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
RE:
Ohhh...I am so sorry, my bad. All that you need to do is set the denominator equal to zero. That is known as your domain and vertical asymptote...
Horizontal asymptotes in Pre-Calc are either 3 things
1. If you have equal powers in the numerator and denominator you divide the leading co-efficients, thus how we got y=3
2. Power on top (numerator) less than power on bottom (denominator) you will have a Horizontal Asymptote at y=0
3. If the Power on top (numerator) is greater than power on bottom (denominator) you will have a Slant Asymptote so you need to Synthetically divide the denominator into the numerator...
