$y$; $x=0$; vertical
RECALL: The logarithmic function $f(x) = \log_b{x}$ is: (1) increasing from left to right; and (2) has a domain of $(0, +\infty)$. Since the value of $x$ is greater than 0, then the graph of the function will be asymptotic to $x=0$ (the y-axis), which is a vertical line. Thus, the missing expressions in the given statement are: $y$; $x=0$; vertical
