Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it \[\frac{x^2}{4x^2}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so for the vertical asymptotes, set the denominator equal to zero and solve for \(x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you get \[4x^2=0\] or \[(2x)(2+x)=0\] and the solutions are \(x=2\) or \(x=2\) those are your vertical asymptotes (there are two of them)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the horizontal asymptote, note that the numerator and denominator have the same degree (both are degree 2) so it is the ratio of the leading coefficients

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the leading coefficient of \(x^2\) is 1 and the leading coefficient of \(4x^2\) is \(1\) therefore the horizontal asymptote is \(y=1\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is in the case where the degrees are the same. there is no slant asymptote for there to be a slant asymptote , the degree of the numerator would have to be one more than the degree of the denominator
