I presume your expression is:
`f(x) = (x-1)/(3x+2)`
In this expression, x cannot be equal to -2/3 as this renders the denominator of the function equal to 0, and anything divided by zero is undefined.
As we can see from the graph of the function, as x approaches -2/3 the function goes to positive and negative infinity, but at no point is the function defined at x=-2/3. This is called an asymptote of a function, and in this case, it is a vertical asymptote.
