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!
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...
