vertical asymptote

horizontal asymptote y = 0

#### Explanation:

Vertical asymptotes occur as the denominator of a rational function tends to zero. To find the equation let the denominator equal zero.

solve : 2x - 1 = 0 →

# x = 1/2 " is the asymptote "# Horizontal asymptotes occur as

#lim_(x→±∞) f(x) → 0# If the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator, as in this case , numerator degree 0 , denominator degree 1.

Then the equation of asymptote is always y = 0Here is the graph of the function.
