I REALLY NEED HELP WITH THIS QUESTION, PLEASE HELP!!
Give an example of a logarithmic function g, which has a vertical asymptote
x = –2, and passes through the origin.

  • Precalculus -

    y = ln(x+2) - ln 2
    = ln[(x/2) + 1)

    It becomes vertical at x -> -2 and is not defined for x < -2

    The added constant makes it go through the origin
