A vertical asymptote 2010-08-19
From Kendall:
If a compound function is defined as 1/x for x<0 and 5 for x>=0 does it have a vertical asymptote at x=0? According to the definition in my book I think it does because the left-hand limit is infinity and it only takes one side to cause a vertical asyptote. Thanks!

From Kelly:

X2 - 49
Y= -------------------
X2 + 9x + 20

We are trying to solve this equation to find the vertical asymptote.
