# What are the asymptotes for F(X) = (1/ X^2) - 2?

Oct 28, 2015

Vertical asymptote at $x = 0$
Horizontal asymptote at $y = - 2$

#### Explanation:

Vertical asymptotes occur at points where the denominator is zero, so in this case at $x = 0$.

Horizontal asymptotes occur at ${\lim}_{x \to \pm \infty} F \left(x\right) = - 2$
