Hi, new to the forum. I've been using answers.yahoo.com for the past couple weeks. It's good, but not the best for asking follow-on questions to your topic and stuff. I googled "math help" and "math forum" and this site was the sixth link under the search term "math forum." I recognized this site right away because I've come across it recently when trying to understand some calc concepts. Glad to have found and joined this site.

So, I'm hoping someone could show how to algebraically find the vertical and horizontal asymptotes of

f(x) = x(lnx).

P.S. this is just part of a slightly more involved calc problem. The actual problem also asks for the x and y intercepts, max's and mins, and inflection points. But the part of the problem I am stuck on is where it asks to find the vertical and horizontal asymptotes.
