identify the asymtotes

f(x) = -2x2+5x-4/x+3


Expert Answer

Step 1


The function is 

Step 2

Known facts:

Vertical asymptote:

The undefined points of a rational function is said to be the veritical asymptote of a rational function.

Horizontal asymptote:

For a rational function, if the degree of the numerator is more than one time the degree of the denominator, then its asymptote is said to be a slant asymptote which is in the form of y = mx+b.

Step 3


Since the given function is observed to be in the form of P/Q, it is a rational function.

Compute the vertical asympote of the given f(x) as follows.

Obtain the undefined points of the function b...
