y = x  6
No oblique asymptote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have an improper fraction because the degree of the numerator is 2 and the degree of the denominator is 1. When you divide a degree 2 by a degree 1 you end up with a degree 1 polynomial (at most). Doing synthetic division of this function you get dw:1433095265662:dw See  http://www.purplemath.com/modules/synthdiv.htm (for synthetic division process) It's always good to plot the function to visualize the asymptote: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=plot+%28x%5E24x%2B8%29%2F%28x%2B2%29+with+asymptote Does all this make sense?
