# Math Help - Reciprocal Graphs: Asymptotes

1. ## Reciprocal Graphs: Asymptotes

Hey guys! I'm having some trouble with quadratic asymptotes. The linear ones I understand just fine.

Where I'm having trouble is finding the points to plot so I can sketch my asymptote on the Cartesian plane.

I would appreciate it if you could help me

Thank You!

*EDIT! I'm looking for the Hyperbola, not the asymptotes!!

Do you have a particular example that we can look at?

3. yea I made one up that I can't solve. y=2x^2+9x+6

I have my parabola. The asymptotes are the x-intercepts

I need to sketch the hyperbola by using points.

4. anyone? hyperbola?
