b(x) = x^3/(5x^3 - x^2 - 22x)

= x^2/(5x^2 - x - 22) , after dividing by x , x≠0

f'(x) = (2x(5x^2 - x - 22) - x^2(10x - 1) )/(5x^2-x-22)^2

to have a vertical tangent, the slope must be undefined, that is

the denominator of the above f'(x) must be zero

5x^2 - x - 22 = 0

(5x-11)(x+2) = 0

two vertical asymptotes:

x = 11/5 and x = -2
