    graph y=3/3-x

    2 question one i got one i didn't.

    The one I got was
    5a. graph y=3/3-x.

    The one i dont get is

    State the equations of the horizontal and vertrical asymptotes of the function in question 5a.

    You actually typed:

    y= \frac {3}{3} - x

    But I'm assuming you meant this:

    y= \frac {3}{3-x}


    Horizontal Asympote: y=0 (since \lim_{x \to \infty} \frac {3}{3-x} = 0, but since you are in high school... if the degree of the polynomial in the denom. is higher than the numerator, the HA is y=0. If the numerical is higher, than there's no HA. If the degree are the same, then you take the leading coefficient and put it in fractional form.)


    Vertical Asymptote: x=3 (this will make the equation undefined, because you let x=3, the 3/0 is undefined)
