1. To find vertical asymptotes, set the denominator equal to zero, or:   (-6x-2)(3x-6) = 0   Now, we can solve for x, remember if ab = 0, then either a=0 or b=0.   -6x-2 = 0; x=-1/3 3x-6 = 0; x=2   2. To find horizontal asymptotes,...

The quickest way to do these is usually to draw them, but here is the long way.   There are various ideas to know... all of them very, very old (think Ancient Greece), but here's the rundown. #1. The sum of the angles of a triangle makes 180° #2. Any line segment is...
