Section 3.5

For the exponential growth function shown here, the horizontal asymptote is the line y = 0. The same applies to the exponential decay function.

You say?

The horizontal asymptote for the Gaussian function shown here is the line y = 0.

Yes?

For the logistic function graph shown here, the horizontal asymptotes are y = 3 and y = 0.

You say?

The vertical asymptote for the natural logarithmic function shown here is the line x = 0. The same applies to the common logarithmic function shown here.

Yes?
