This is too good not to post! Someone made it and posted it on facebook and I saved it to my computer. I can’t seem to find the link to where it was posted though :-(.. and I can’t find any websites that have the image 🙁

  1. Would’ve been better if the range was in set builder notation.

  2. VERTICAL ASYMPTOTES FTW!!!!!!

  3. Equation should look more like y=-1/(x-gandalf) 😛

  5. Domain and range are also incorrect, should be:
    Domain = R\{Gandalf}
    Range = R\{0}

  6. Writing it in English is just as correct as writing it in mathematical notation. Yes, it’s bad practice, but it’s no less right.

  7. That’s a better version, done by the original artist.

  8. no it’s actually wrong
    the domain should be: [-inf,gandalf]u[gandalf,+inf]
    and the range should be: [-inf,inf]
    the picture shows a vertical asymptote. this is related to domain values, not range values. if it were a horizontal asymptote, then it would be in respect to the range.

  9. This equation is an epic win

  12. Hoooooooly cow, I drew this my senior year of high school, way back in 2009. I never thought I’d see it again. Damn.

  13. Nerd out time
    This wouldn’t actually be x^balrog
    It would actually be f(x)=(-balrog/(x-2)) or maybe tangent(balrog*(x-c))
    where b is the distance from the Y axis of the asymptote.
    and c is |b-pi/2|
