Some things are untouchable. The Mona Lisa, magma...asymptotes?

An **asymptote** is a line to which a function gets infinitely close. There are several different types of asymptotes, it will be our pleasure to introduce them.

If an asymptote is present, it will exist in at least one infinite direction, but notice that it is possible for the actual asymptote line to be intersected at some point.
