#"vertical asymptotes at "x=-3/5" and "x=6#


The denominator of f(x) cannot be zero as this would make f(x) undefined. Equating the denominator to zero and solving gives the values that x cannot be and if the numerator is non-zero for these values then they are vertical asymptotes.

#"solve "(5x+3)(x-6)=0#

#x=-3/5" and "x=6" are the asymptotes"#
