I have the problem f(x)= ^{X5}/_{X2+X6} and I have to find the vertical asymtope, horizontal asymtope, xintercept, and yintercept. And graph the problem. I am having problems finding the yintercept. I am a student asking a question from my book. Hi, The yintercepts are the points where the graph crosses the yaxis. Points on the yaxis are points of the form (0,y), that is the xcoordinate is zero. In the expression The xintercepts arre the points where the graph crossed the xaxis. These are points of the form (x,0), that is the ycoordinate must be zero. Your expression ^{x5}/_{x2+x6} can only have a value of zero when the numerator is zero and the denominator is not zero. This happens when x = 5 and hence the only xintercept is (0,5) Cheers,Harley
