vertical asymptote:
set the denominator equal to zero and solve for x

so x=4 ?

yes, that's the vertical asymptote

so how do i write it out??
VERTICAL ASYMPTOTE: x+4=0
4 4
x=4
thats the equation of the VERTICAL asymptote?

now long divide 3x^2  12 into x  4

okay, so are there any oblique, horizontal or etc. asypmtotes?

1
the degrees of the numerator and denominator are different (and the numerator degree is larger), so we have an oblique asymptote

good only focus on the quotient

so the oblique asymptote is y = 3x+12

oh so i just show the work i got above (disregarding the remainder) and my answer is y=3x+12 ?

oh wait, why is it divided by x4?

and not x+4?

hmm i for some reason thought it was x4, my bad

so its x+4 ?

yayy!! and are there only those two equations?? the vertical and oblique ashymptopes? or are there more?

okay and vertical is x=4
and oblique is y=3x12
right?
