What are the equations of the asymptotes of the graph of f(x)=5/x+7 −8 ?
Select each correct answer.
x = 7
y = 8
Thank you!!! p.s the -8 on the side is next to the fraction, which is on the left.
f(x) = 5 / (x + 7) - 8
Note that x = -7 makes a denominator = 0
So....this is the vertical asymptote
The rational expression has a lower degree polynomial / higher degree polynomial
This means that we have a horizontal asymptote at y = 0
But the "-8 " shifts this down 8 units
So....the horzontal asymptote is y = -8
