    First, simplify the fraction.

    How would I do that

    the (x - 2) in the denominator can cancel out the (x - 2) in the numerator. What does the fraction look like after that?

    It would just be x+3?

    Remember, there's an unshown (I don't think that's a word, but oh well.) one on the top.

    It's a 1, so it would be 1 y = ---- x +3

    So multiply by 1?

    No, you don't. The vertical asymptote is the value of x that makes the denominator equal 0. x + 3 = 0 Find x. There's your answer.
