An asymptote is a line that approaches a given curve but does not meet it at any distance. By now, we have already covered one of the asymptotes you need to know for this course (essential discontinuities). This is a vertical asymptote. The value x is approaching is the asymptote because the function goes closer and closer to that x value but never reaches it. Meanwhile, the y value continues to increase. 📒
