    Currently doing the Jan 2009 FP1 paper, I've correctly calculated all 3 asymptotes, the horizontal one being y=1. When drawing the graph, the value between the two vertical asymptotes intercepts the horizontal one. The graph is shown here http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i...%28x%5E2-2x%29
    Any guidance to where I'm going wrong?
    EDIT:Q6 on the paper

    So what's the problem?
    It's perfectly ok to intercept the asymptote. It only matters as x tends to +/- infinity. If I've misunderstood your question sorry. A link to the paper would help.
