Question

Find the horizontal and vertical asymptotes of the graph of the function. (You need not sketch the graph. If an answer does not exist, enter DNE.)
g(x) = (6 x)/(x^2 + 10 x - 24)

Step 1

Given, help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose6 x g(x) х2+ 10 х - 24 For vertical asymptotes Zeros of the denominator are the vertical asymptotes x210 x 24 = 0 х2 + 12 х — 2х - 24 — 0 х(х + 12) — 2( х+ 12) — 0 (х + 12)( х — 2) %3D 0 -12 or x 2 Either x So, vertical asymptotes: x = -12 and x = 2 fullscreen
Step 2
