    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?

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

    kk how do i find that?

    long divide 3x^2 - 12 into x-4

    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 ?
