RE: Help with problem
Hi!
For myself I prefert to do a simplification before using de domain function! After that, the domain is OK… Choice A with 5. Marcel

When graphed by hand, it's clear that y becomes great without bound when: x > 5 y is therefore undefined if x = 5, as it's a real number (10) divided by zero. The graph shows y becomes great in the negative direction as x > 5 from less than 5 (e.g. 5.11), and it gets great in the positive direction as x > 5 from larger than 5 (e.g. 4.99). The principle being demonstrated here is why, by definition, any number (including 0) that's divided by 0 is undefined. The direction in which it's great without bound, + or , is indeterminate. It cannot be both simultaneously. There must also be a hole shown where x = 5, as it creates a denominator with the original quadratic that goes to zero. By definition, 0 divided by any number other than 0 is zero. Zero divided by zero, just like any other real number divided by zero, is also undefined. In other words, 0/0 is not equal to one. I believe that's the underlying principle here. At the limit where x > 5, y > 0.1, but that's not the same as x = 5. Plug in x = 5.1 and 5.01, and then x = 4.9 and 4.99 to see what you get. It converges on each side of 0.1 and there's an infinitesimally tiny hole for exactly x = 5. Zero is a special case that is neither a positive nor a negative real number. It has no "sign" like all other real numbers. Hope this explains some of the underlying principles surrounding why division of any real number, including zero, by zero is undefined.

RE: Help with problem
There is one vertical asymptote (x=5) and y=0 (i.e. xaxis) is the horizontal asymptote.
There is no slant asymptote. Best, Aries

RE: Help with problem
I would likevto point out that is clearvthat 0/0 is undefined.
But any real number>0 divided by 0 I would say is infinite. When we have a function in single variable I would say that if left an right limits are the same, then it is definite. It may be the case of for example 5/(x5)^2.

Let 1 = x Multiply by x to get x = x^2 Subtract 1 from each side to get x  1 = x^2  1 Divide both sides by x − 1 (this is a hidden division by zero as x = 1) (x  1) / (x  1) = (x^2  1) / (x  1) 1 = ((x  1) * (x + 1)) / (x1) which simplifies to 1 = x + 1 Since x = 1, by substitution: 1 = 1 + 1, and therefore: 1 = 2 This is impossible. Hope this helps some with understanding why any number divided by zero is undefined.
