    The vertical asymptote would be x=-2 (because adding -2 to 2 would give you a zero in the denominator), and the horizontal asymptote would be 2 (as calculated by dividing 2x/x)

    Vertical asymptote is when y goes to infinity. Horizontal asymptote is when x goes to infinity. To find the horizontal asymptote, find the limit of (2x - 1) / (x + 2) as goes to infinity.
