Thanks

f(x)  =  x / (x - 1)^2

 

This will have a horizontal asymptote at y = 0    the graph will approach this as it increases without bound both in a positive and negative direction

 

And it will will have a vertical asymptote at x  = 1

 

As x approaches 1 from both sides, y → infinity

 

To see this....pick some x values on either side of x = 1 that are increasingly closer and closer to 1 and evaluate them in the function.....here are some test values :

Look  at the graph here : https://www.desmos.com/calculator/8yxvmnqor7
