All right, I'll assume you can't do that now. Is this the equation:\[x ^{2}+\frac{ 6x8 }{ x8 }\]

the degree of the top is greater than the degree of the bottom therefore no horizontal asymptote no calc needed, that is all

If what I wrote was the equation, then you find the derivative of each term in the equation, using the quotient rule on the second term.

reall no horizontal ?

if the degree of the bottom was greater, then the horizontal asymptote would be \(y=0\) if the degree of the top is greater no horizontal asymptote

yes there is a slant use long division

if the degrees are the same, it is the ration of the leading coefficients that is it

so the anserw is no horizontal asymptote

how'd you find that @timo86m

take derivitive of (x^2+6x8)/(x8) \[{\frac {2\,x+6}{x8}}{\frac {{x}^{2}+6\,x8}{ \left( x8 \right) ^{2} }} \] then just plug in a very high or very low value for x It has roughly a V asymptote of 8.5
