Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not all functions have oblique asymptote if the degree of the numerator one larger than the denominaotr degree then you can find slant(oblique)asy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm y=\frac{ x^\color{ReD}{2}4 }{ x^{\color{blue}{1}}+1 }\] highest degree of the numerator is 2 and the denominator is one so we can find oblique asy divide x^24 by x+1 using long division or synthetic division btw for this question you can factor x^2 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the degree of the numerator is bigger than that which is the denominator so this one will be a slant how do you find a slant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so factoring x^2  4 would be x 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that wouldn't work sorry we should divide

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1synthetic division or long which one is easy for u?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0synthetic division does the one become 1 or stay the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right we should solve for x x+1 = 0 x=1 dw:1444312769154:dw x^2 4 is same as x^2 +0x  4 we should write highest degree to lowest so that's why i wrote 0 there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1carry down the leading coefficient and then multiply bye 1 dw:1444312872330:dw combine them 0 1 = 1 and then repeat steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah I see one more thing real quick a negative * a negative is a positive right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes negative times negative = positive :=)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the final answer should be 1x^2x3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm when we divide by synthetic division the degree of the answer should be one less than the original equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so its x3 yeah!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh Okay so its x1 with a remainder of 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right it's y =x1 that's our oblique asy.
