a) Horizontal Asymptote 

b) Vertical Asymptote

We will have a vertical asymptote

 

See an example here:  https://www.desmos.com/calculator/38rlm9mnnw

 

g (x)  = 2x^2 -1

f(x)  = x^3

 

g(0)  = 2(0)^2 -  1   =  -1

f(0) = (0)^3  =  0

 

Note...that at  x  = c  =  0......we have the vertical asymptote  x  =  0

 

 

cool cool cool
