# How do you find the vertical asymptote of a rational function?

Please see below.

Step 1, Find the zeros of the denominator.

Step 2 Test to see whether any of the zeros pf the denominator are also zeros of the numerator. For any zero of both, we have a common factor. Reduce the fraction and check the remaining zeros of the new denominator.

To find the vertical asymptote of a rational function, follow these steps:

- Simplify the rational function if necessary.
- Determine the values of x that make the denominator of the rational function equal to zero.
- These values of x will be the vertical asymptotes of the function.

That's it! The values of x that make the denominator zero are the vertical asymptotes of the rational function.
