## Oblique Asymptotes

Oblique Asymptotes Worked Examples Sketch the graph of $y=\frac{{{x^2}}}{{x - 1}}$ , showing all the important features. Domain: all real x, x ≠ 1 we have a vertical asymptote at x = 1 Find the intercepts: at x = 0, y = 0 hence passes through the [...]

## Vertical Asymptote

Vertical Asymptote worked examples Write the equation of the vertical asymptote of $y = \frac{x}{{2(1 - x)}}$.  2(1 - x) = 0 1 - x = 0 x = 1 to find the vertical asymptote, we need to find the value for which the function is undefined, which is [...]
