    Are you talking about a horizontal asymptote?

    If the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator then y = 0 is a horizontal asymptote.

    If the degree of the numerator is equal to the degree of the denominator than divide the coefficients of the terms of highest degree. \[y=\frac{a _{n}}{a _{m}}\] is the horizontal asymptote.

    If the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of the denominator, then there is no horizontal asymptote.
