Reciprocal of a cubic function

  1. Oct 22, 2009 #1
    Is it possible to have the reciprocal of a cubic function that does not have any vertical asymptotes?

    If the reciprocal has no vertical asymptotes, then the cubic function would have no roots. No such cubic exists.

    Yeah.. thought so. I guess for all reciprocal functions, there will always be a vertical asymptote.
