**How to determine the asymptote or asymptotes :-**

----- In order to obtain the asymptotes parallel to the axis of

**x,**equate to zero the co-efficient of the highest power of

**x.**For example, if the curve be in the

*degree*

**n th**and the term containing

*be absent,*

**n th power of x**then the co-efficient of

*equated to zero*

**(n-1) the power of x**will give the asymptotes parallel to the axis of

**x.**----- If both the terms containing

*and*

**n th power of x***be absent, then the co-efficient of*

**(n-1) th power of x***equated to zero will give two asymptotes*

**(n-2) th power of x**parallel to the axis of

**x.**----- To get the asymptotes parallel to the axis of

**y,**equate to zero the co-efficient of the highest power of

**y.**For example, if the curve be the

*and*

**n th degree**the term containing

*be absent,*

**n th power of y**then the co-efficient of

*equated to zero*

**(n-1) th power of y**will give the asymptotes parallel to the axis of

**y.**----- If both the terms containing

*and*

**n th power of y***be absent, then the co-efficient of*

**(n-1) th power of y***equated to zero will give two asymptotes*

**(n-2) th power of y**parallel to the axis of

**y.**
