The figure shows the graph of f(x)= 6x-10 divided by 2x-a. Find the value of a. My answer is 3. Is that right? Thanks for checking.

$\displaystyle f(x)$ has a vertical asymtote at the zero of $\displaystyle 2x-a$,Originally Posted by kwtolley
so the $\displaystyle x$ corresponding to the vertical asymtote is:
$\displaystyle x=a/2$.
From the diagram we see that the vertical asymtote is at $\displaystyle x=2$, so:
$\displaystyle 2=a/2$,
or:
$\displaystyle a=4$
