Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All right, I'll assume you can't do that now. Is this the equation:\[x ^{2}+\frac{ 6x8 }{ x8 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the degree of the top is greater than the degree of the bottom therefore no horizontal asymptote no calc needed, that is all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0reall no horizontal ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the degrees are the same, it is the ration of the leading coefficients that is it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0take 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
