Isn't it impossible to have a horizontal asymptote and a slant asymptote in one function/graph?

    zarkon there would be a "mirror" on the other side, making it not a function.

    does it matter..it is a function that has a horizontal and slant asymptote you can easily construct a piece-wise function that does this

    oh I was under the impression it had to be a rational function. piecewise would work, yes.

    if it is a rational function then no it can't be done

    yeah, i figured. just memory which made me think he did, since this is a common question on rational functions.
