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

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

    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

    so the oblique asymptote is y = 3x+12
