\[g(x)=\frac{ x+3 }{ (x+1)(x-2) }\]

Would the horizontal asymptote be y=0? Or...?

what is the degree of the numerator? degree of the denominator?

I expanded the denominator to get \(x^2-x-2\)

  • anonymous
the degree of the denominator is larger than the degree of the numerator

  • jim_thompson5910
the actual expansion doesn't matter. The key here is that we have x^2 as the first term, so we have a 2nd degree polynomial in the denominator

Okay

this is not a mystery. plug in say \(x=100\) (not a hysterically large number) and see that you get an answer very close to zero

Okay. Thank you both :)
