Lesson Summary:

Learn how to find the vertical asymptote, domain, and x-intercepts of a logarithmic function with a horizontal shift. By taking a look at the initial function, you can find the domain and x-intercepts. When making changes to the function, set x greater than or equal to 0 to x minus 1 greater than or equal to 0. The x-intercept is found by setting y equal to 0 and solving for x.

Lesson Description:

Given transformations find the vertical asymptote, domain and x intercepts

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
