Lord of the Rings Math

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. 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.

2. 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.

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

4. 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|
