Suppose than an object that is originally at room temperature of 30 Celsius is placed in a freezer. The temperature T (x) of the object can be approximated by the model T (x) = 360 / xˆ2 + 4x + 12, where x is the time in hours after the object is placed in the freezer.

a) What is the horizontal asymptote of the graph of this function and what does it represent in the context of this problem?

b) A chemist needs a compound cooled to less than 5 Celsius. Determine the amount of time required for the compound to cool so that its temperature is less than 5 Celsius.
