I need help finding the asymptotes, and domain of these two graphs..
1) 1/x^2
Vertical Asym.:?
Domain:?
Horizontal asym.: y=0
2) x^2/1
Vertical Asym.:?
Domain:?
Horizontal asym.: none
THANKS!

The answers for the horizontal asymptotes are correct.
Hints for the remainder:
1. All polynomials have a domain of R, or (∞,∞).
2. Horizontal asymptotes are finite values to which the function approaches when x→±∞.
3. Vertical asymptotes for a rational function (i.e. polynomials in both numerator and denominator) occur when the denominator equals zero.
4. The domain of a rational function is therefore (&infin,∞)points at which vertical asymptotes occur.
