Create a rational function that has a polynomial function that is similar.
The rational function must have a vertical asymptote. thanks for any help.

  • precal -

    y = 1/x is asymptotic to both the x and y axes. But it is not a polynomial. You need to have a denominator vanish at some value of x to have a vertical asymptote.
