Anyone feel like giving me a refresher of horizontal asymptotes?

    sure. if you have a rational function, vertical asymptotes are values for which the denominator is 0

    http://www.purplemath.com/modules/asymtote2.htm OR http://www.tutorvista.com/math/horizontal-asymptote-definition A horizontal asymptote to any curve is defined as the line which touches the curve only at infinite points. The curve and the line never meet at finite points.

    horizontal ones go like this: if the degree of the denominator is bigger than the numerator it is y = 0

    if the degree of the numerator is bigger, there is no horizontal asymptotes

    and if the degrees are the same it is y = ratio of leading coefficients
