Find all values of x where there is a vertical asymptote for the equation \(y=\frac{x+1}{x^2-2x+1}\).

From what I can gather (my LaTeX is hot garbage) your equation is:

 

y=(x+1)/(x^2-2x+1)

 

f(x)=y (i think im kinda rusty)

 

x=L is a vertical asymptote of f(x)=(x+1)/(x^2-2x+1), that is, if the limit of the function is infinite, to restate, it means that possible points are points where the denominator equals 0 or doesn't exist. *p**f*

 

So, just find the points where the denominator equals 0 and check them! Easy as pie!

 

x=1 chaching

 

x=1 is a vertical asymptote.

 

Yay!
