when graphing a rational function (y = 1/x) i get a line crossing the asymptote (y axis for this function...)
?how can i stop this...?
???
thank you.

Post your sheet please.

ok...
here's my example...
thank you...
Re: Graph Rational Function
Well
Obviously, dividing by zero is the cause.
You could delete A12:B12.
Or click once on the line chart, and again on the part between -1 and 0 on the axis. Format that part of the line invisible. Do the same for the part between 0 and 1.

Re: Graph Rational Function
thank you...! (i deleted x = 0)...
?could you explain further about the line chart and make invisible...?
and what is the best way to show the y axis going (vertically) through the origin...?
thank you...!
Re: Graph Rational Function
If you want to see the asymptotic behavior of rational functions, you need to plot for values of x that exponentially approach the poles from either side (i.e., not plot through them).
