Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Specifically, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But as mentioned, you have a denominator of higher degree, so your horizontal asymptote will be y=0
