    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?

    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.
