Find the Asymptotes y=sec(x)

For any , vertical asymptotes occur at , where is an integer. Use the basic period for , , to find the vertical asymptotes for . Set the inside of the secant function, , for equal to to find where the vertical asymptote occurs for .
Set the inside of the secant function equal to .
The basic period for will occur at , where and are vertical asymptotes.
Find the period to find where the vertical asymptotes exist. Vertical asymptotes occur every half period.

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance between and is .
Divide by .
The vertical asymptotes for occur at , , and every , where is an integer. This is half of the period.
There are only vertical asymptotes for secant and cosecant functions.
Vertical Asymptotes: for any integer
No Horizontal Asymptotes
No Oblique Asymptotes
