hi Berniard,

That's about right.  When a denominator is zero, the value of y 'goes to infinity'.  Those are vertical asymptotes.

The others are found when you consider what happens when x tends to + or - infinity.

So,by checking where the graph tends to infinity I can know the asymptote?

hi Berniard,

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, there is.  Have you got a function for me to demonstrate on?

goes through all the steps for sketching a graph from its function.

Is there a way to deduce asymptotes(horizontal,vertical,oblique) of a function without graphing the function?
