    The rule is that if the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of the denominator, then the x-axis is a horizontal asymptote. http://www.coolmath.com/precalculus-review-calculus-intro/precalculus-algebra/18-rational-functions-finding-horizontal-slant-asymptotes-01

    i would do long division if i were you then see what happens as \(x \to \pm \infty\) you can already guess something as you have \( \dfrac{O(x^2)}{O(x)}\) but the long div might make it clearer

    Which part about the statement: "the x axis is the horizontal asymptote" do you fail to understand?

    @Mertsj you've confused the n's & m's in your link |dw:1443132117003:dw|
