# Let f ( x ) = 2 x + 10 x − 1 and decide whether the following are true or false.(a) f(x) has a vertical asymptote at x =   1 .(b) f(x) has y   = 2 as its horizontal asymptote.

(a)

To determine

Whether the statement, “f(x)=2x+10x1 has a vertical asymptote at x=1.” is true or not.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided statement is, “f(x)=2x+10x1 has a vertical asymptote at x=1.”

Explanation:

Consider the provided function, f(x)=2x+10x1.

Now, it is a rational function and the vertical asymptote of a rational function y=f(x)

(b)

To determine

Whether the statement, “f(x)=2x+10x1 has a horizontal asymptote at y=2.” is true or not.
