Solutions

Chapter 2, Problem 5RCC

(a)

To determine

To Describe: The line x=a is a vertical asymptote of the curve y=f(x).

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

The vertical asymptote of the function y=f(x) is x=a, if y approaches ± as x approaches a from the right or left.

Limit is defined as limxaf(x)=± (or) limxa+f(x)=± (or) both
