# Identify the vertical asymptotes of f(x) = 10 over quantity x squared minus 7x minus 30.

**Solution:**

Vertical asymptotes are defined as the straight line of the equation towards the function f (x).

It is given that

f(x) = 10 over quantity x squared minus 7x minus 30

We can write it as

f(x) = 10/ (x^{2} - 7x - 30)

Let us take f(x) = 0

0 = 10/ (x^{2} - 7x - 30)

Let us factor the denominator

x^{2} - 7x - 30 = 0

Splitting the middle term

x^{2} - 10x + 3x - 30 = 0

Taking out the common terms

x(x - 10) + 3(x - 10) = 0

(x + 3)(x - 10) = 0

x + 3 = 0 or x - 10 = 0

x = -3 or x = 10

Therefore, the vertical asymptotes are x = -3 or x = 10.

## Identify the vertical asymptotes of f(x) = 10 over quantity x squared minus 7x minus 30.

**Summary:**

The vertical asymptotes of f(x) = 10 over quantity x squared minus 7x minus 30 are x = -3 or x = 10.
