Oblique Asymptote is

Vertical Asymptote is

#### Explanation:

from the given:

perform long division so that the result is

Notice the part of the quotient

equate this to

And the divisor

You can see the lines

graph{(y-(x^2-4x+4)/(x+1))(y-x+5)=0[-60,60,-30,30]}

God bless...I hope the explanation is useful..
