    What is it you don't understand? Can you provide an example?

    Not sure what you are asking specifically

    y = \dfrac{f(x)}{g(x)}

    Has asymptotes when g(x) = 0

    There may also be horizontal asymptotes but it would be easier to explain with an actual question

    Not necessarily.

    Plotting the points, I just need a starter intro to it, but there's nothing in the books or on the internet

    Plotting the points of what? Could you at least provide an equation?

    No, that was why I was looking for an example of a question

    But thanks for the correction

    Here's the textbook
    We can't do the whole lot for you. The explanation at the top is quite clear.

    Let \displaystyle f(x)=\frac{1}{x}

    Graph y=f(x)

    Apply your knowledge of graph transformations to figure out what the following would look like:

    y=f(x)+k

    y=f(x-k)

    y=-f(x)

    y=kf(x)

    That will probably answer most of your questions.

    Thank you so so much. I didn't understand the explanation

    Ok good. I was worried my suggestions were more difficult than the textbook!
