    well I am trying to figure out what to put in the equation \[y= \frac{ a^n }{ b^m }\]

    The equation is 7x^2-3x-9/2x^2-4x+5

    HAs tells us what happens for very large values of x; and as such the addons after the first terms are usless since they contribute nothing to the equation so reduce this set up to: 7x^2 ----- 2x^2 now, as x gets larger and larger you can see that x^2/x^2 really cancels out and we are left with?

    alright and I have another one, but I think I know it now. 3x^2-4x-3/2x^2-3x+2
