The asymptotes of a curve are straight lines such that, as one of the curve's coordinates becomes infinitely large, the curve comes infinitesimally close to the line without ever reaching it.
A hyperbola has two asymptotes which intersect at its centre of symmetry. These divide the coordinate plane into four segments and the two arms of the hyperbola are contained within diagonally opposite segments.

An asymptote of a curve is a line where the distance of the curve and line approach zero as they tend to infinity (they get closer and closer without ever meeting)
If one zooms out of a hyperbola, the straight lines are usually asymptotes as they get closer and closer to a specific point, yet do not reach that point.

Define the asymptote of rectangular hyperbola?

An asymptote is a line that a curve approaches, getting closer and closer, but does not cross. Some definitions state that the curve may cross, but may not cross an infinite n

What are the followings-hyberbola-asymptotes of hyperbola-centre of hyperbola-conjugated diameter of hyperbola-diameter of hyperbola-directrices of hyperbola-eccentricity of hyperbola?

Asymptotes are the guidelines that a hyperbola follows. They form  an X and the hyperbola always gets closer to them but never touches  them. If the transverse axis of your
