Question

consider the following functions where a and b are unspecific constants f(x)=x^2+ax+b/x-1, is the line x=1 necessary a vertical asymptote, explain

Answer #1

For vertical asymptote of a function denominator of the function should be zero.

But here if (x^2+ax+b) has a factor of (x-1) i.e if (x^2+ax+b) has solution 1 than (x-1) in numerator and (x-1) in denominator gets canceled which ends up with (x-1) not contributing to the vertical asymptote. So (x=1) is not necessarily a vertical asymptote unless provided that (x^2+ax+b) does not have factor of (x-1).So x=1 is not necessarily be a vertical asymptote for f(x).

Let f be the function defined by f(x)=cx−5x^2/2x^2+ax+b, where
a, b, and c are constants. The graph of f has a vertical asymptote
at x=1, and f has a removable discontinuity at x=−2.
(a) Show that a=2 and b=−4.
(b) Find the value of c. Justify your answer.
(c) To make f continuous at x=−2, f(−2) should be defined as
what value? Justify your answer.
(d) Write an equation for the horizontal asymptote to the graph
of f. Show the...

1. Find the constants a and b so that the function f is
continuous, where
f(x) =(ax^2 + bx if x <=1 or x > 2; (7x+4) 3 if 1 < x

a) The function f(x)=ax^2+8x+b, where a and b are
constants, has a local maximum at the point (2,15). Find the values
of a and b.
b) if b is a positive constand and x> 0, find the
critical points of the function g(x)= x-b ln x, and determine if
this critical point is a local maximum using the second derivative
test.

Suppose f(x)=ax^3−x^2+c where a and c
are some positive constants. Then

f(x)= x^3+2x^2-13x+10/x^2-1
Show that the line x= -1 is a vertical asymptote of f, but x=1
is not a vertical asymptote of f
