The graph of y =1/14x 90 has A horizontal asymptotes, B vertical asymptotes, and

the graphs of the functions y= 14x + 90 and y= 1/14x+90 will intersect C times. The values of A, B, and C are?

Okay first of all 1/14x+90 is a linear function and has no asymptotes.

What I'm assuming you meant is either 1/(14x) + 90 or 1 / (14x + 90).

Secondly, I would assume it didn't occur to you to graph them and answer this question that way? Since you know, the question is about graphs after all.

Any function of the form y = 1/(ax+b), where a is a non-zero number, has 1 horizontal and 1 vertical asymptote.

These graphs intersect twice in both cases.

ASSUMING : (1) y = 1 / ( 14 x + 90) then vertical at x = - 90 / 14...horizontal y = 0 and intersects with y = 14 x + 90 twice......

(2) y = 1 / ( 14 x ) + 90 then a vertical at x = 0....horizontal of y = 90 and intersects with y = 14x + 90 once

(3) y = ( 1 / 14 ) x + 90 then NO asymptote...and intersects with y = 14 x + 90 once
