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.

Give the domain of the function and identify any vertical or horizontal asymptotes. h(x) = 1 / x - 3 + 1 I had x = 0 and y = 3. Would the domain be all numbers except 1?
