c c Kendra Kilmer January 11, 2012 Locating Vertical Asymptotes of Rational Functions If f ( x ) = n ( x ) d ( x ) is a rational function, d ( c ) = 0 and n ( c ) n = 0, then the line x = c is a vertical asymptote of the graph of f . Example 2: Describe the behavior of f at each discontinuity. f ( x ) = x 3 x 2 4 x + 3 Example 3: Find each limit. Use and when appropriate. a) lim x →− 3 x 2 x + 3 b) lim x →− 2 x 2 + x 2 x + 2 14
