# Asymtopes and sketches Watch

1. y =
7x-5
______
2-5x

I know how to find the intercepts and x=2/5 as one of the asymtopes would another be y=1 Im always not sure

Well, you can check if y=1 is an asymptote or not. To do that, set y=1 in the equation and see if it can be solved. If it can be solved then y=1 isn't an asymptote. If it can't be solved, it is.
3. 2-5x=7x-5
7=12x
7/12 = x

Does that mean solved? I mean Y could be solved for any value.. Are you saying it has to be a whole number..?
