one word. long division

  • amistre64
that was 2 words ;) but yeah, find your remainder

or rather your quotient, the remainder will go to zero as x gets large ....

In general, an asymptote to \(f(x)\) is a function \(p(x)\) such that \[\lim_{x\to\infty}\bigg(f(x)-p(x)\bigg)=0\]To view this in the light of your particular problem, \(f(x)\) is a rational function, ie. a ratio of polynomials \(\dfrac{A(x)}{B(x)}\), and you're looking to find \(p(x)\). Since \(\deg A(x)=\deg B(x)+1\), long division would give you a polynomial quotient term and a remainder term, so that you can write \[f(x)=\frac{A(x)}{B(x)}=C(x)+\frac{D(x)}{E(x)}\]where \(\deg E(x)>\deg D(x)\). This last part is important, because as \(x\to\infty\), the remainder term will disappear, leaving you with \[\lim_{x\to\infty}\bigg(f(x)-p(x)\bigg)=\lim_{x\to\infty}\bigg(C(x)+\frac{D(x)}{E(x)}-p(x)\bigg)=\lim_{x\to\infty}\bigg(C(x)-p(x)\bigg)\]You want this limit to be zero, and the easiest way for that to happen is if \(C(x)=p(x)\). That is, the quotient term *is* the asymptote.

@SithsAndGiggles nice explanation. can we say degree E(x) is one greater than D(x) or in general D(x) / E(x) will have form c / (x - a)

Not necessarily. Consider this example: \[\frac{x^2}{x^2+1}=\frac{x^2+1-1}{x^2+1}=1-\frac{1}{x^2+1}\]so in this case, \(\deg D+2=\deg E\)
