2-07 Asymptotes of Rational Functions

A rational function (which is a fraction in which both the numerator and denominator are polynomials) has a slant asymptote when the degree of the numerator is

Asymptotes of Rational Functions

Solution: We have, f (x) = (x 2 – 3x – 10)/ (x – 5). Here f (x) has a slant asymptote as the degree of numerator is one more than that of denominator. Using the slant asymptote


Knowing is half the battle.

5 stars overall, amazing App! Don't recommend for all those that plan on using it to cheat out of their homework (like 99% of you will use it for ‚) But certainly get it to help you SEE how problems are solved.

But there's one thing I'm not happy about, that is, you take away the function to get answer right after the question show on screen, now I have to take a picture of it. But this app makes it as easy as possible to get an explanation breaking apart the problem in chunks, with just the scan of your phone.

99 a month sib is worth it when it comes to the steps. But I'll still use this app. But with math app I can get more practice and know I'm doing it right or correct if I'm doing it wrong, by seeing the solutions now I am able to do on my own, great and simple app, has a good quality app.
