Curves, Tangents and Asymptotes

Curves, Tangents and Asymptotes

In this feature, we invite you to explore properties of graphs. Can you find functions whose graphs have the given properties? How does a graph change (or stay the same) when you transform it? And what do we really mean by a tangent?
