    I understand that the function has a horizontal asymptote but im not sure to find the number of the asymptote

    I can't really tell what your equation is, but here are the rules. |dw:1433814042372:dw|

    Specifically, the numerator must be one higher than the denominator to have an oblique asymptote. If the numerator is of a degree more than 1 higher than the denomiator, then there is no oblique or horizontal asymptote.

    But as mentioned, you have a denominator of higher degree, so your horizontal asymptote will be y=0
