Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0question states: find the horizontal or oblique asymptotes and write their equation and also state in limit form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To find the horizontal asymptote you have to take the limit of the function at + \[\infty\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because the idea is that as the function approaches + infinity it approaches a certain y value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure what you're asking. Is 5 / (x2) = f(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If that was the case, you would write the problem like this: lim 5/(x2) = x(5/x / 1 2/x/1) = 0 x>\[\infty\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because as x approaches infinity, the denominator gets bigger and bigger causing the y value to get smaller and smaller (when you divide a number by a larger number it makes it smaller). Therefore, it would be the same for negative infinity. So you have a horizontal asymptote at y = 0
