Horizontal asymptote at:

Vertical asymptote at:

#### Explanation:

The horizontal asymptote is at :

So in this case:

as x tends to infinity the denominator keeps getting larger and

larger forcing the fraction to tend to zero, hence: the horizontal

asymptote is at

The vertical asymptote(s) are the at the value(s) of x that make the

function

case is at:
