    Horizontal asymptotes \[=f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{6x^3+17x^2-528}{2x^3-14x+321}=...\]

    Divide both the numerator and denominator by x^3

    And \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{1}{x} =0\]

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{6x^3+17x^2-528}{2x^3-14x+321}\]\[=\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{6x^3+17x^2-528}{x^3}}{\frac{2x^3-14x+321}{x^3}}\]\[=\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{6+\frac{17}{x}-\frac{528}{x^3}}{2-\frac{14}{x^2}+\frac{321}{x^3}}\]Then take the limit
