( 29 1 f x x = 1 lim 0 x x →∞ = As the denominator gets larger, the value of the fraction gets smaller. There is a horizontal asymptote if: ( 29 lim x f x b →∞ = or ( 29 lim x f x b →-∞ =
2 lim 1 x x x →∞ + Example 1: 2 lim x x x →∞ = This number becomes insignificant as . x → ∞ lim x x x = 1 = There is a horizontal asymptote at 1.
