* Give a linear function with its zero at x = a, what is the equation of the vertical asymptote of its reciprocal function?

* Give a quadratic function with its zeros at x = a and x = b, what are the equations of the vertical asymptotes of its reciprocal function?

  1. f = k(x-a)
    1/f = 1/k(x-a)
    so the vertical asymptote is x=a

    similarly for the quadratic. the asymptotes are at x=a and x=b, where the denominator is zero.
