About asymptotes

The asymptote of a function is a  curve that satisfy the condition for which the distance between the asymptote and the function, approaches  “0” , when they tend to infinity.

Asymptotes are used to build the graph of a function.

Asymptotes have different shapes. 

We are going to show in the next pages how to derive the equations for the line asymptotes.

Below is a pictorial example for a graph of a function and its asymptotes.

 Asymtotes -general


The asymptotes are used to help graphing a function.
