Textbook Problem

Find the horizontal and vertical asymptotes of each curve. If you have a graphing device, check: your work by graphing the curve and estimating the asymptotes.

To determine

**To find:** The horizontal and vertical asymptotes of

Explanation

**Definition used:**

**Limit Laws used:** Suppose that *c* is a constant and the limits

Limit law 1:

Limit law 2:

Limit law 3:

Limit law 4:

Limit law 5:

Limit law 6: *n* is a positive integer.

Limit law 7:

**Definition used:** Horizontal Asymptote**:**

The line

**Calculation:**

Consider the function,

Compute the limit of *x* approaches infinity.

Apply the appropriate laws and simplify further.

Therefore, the function *x* approaches infinity. That is,

Since,

Thus, the horizontal asymptote is

Compute the limit of *x* approaches negative infinity
