Answer:

#x=+-2 and y = 0#,

Explanation:

Expressed in partial fractions,

#y = g(x) = 3 +(5/2)/(x-2)+(3/2)/(x+2)#

This form readily discloses that

#x=+-2# represent the vertical asymptotes.

Also, as #x to +-oo, y to 0#. And so, y = 0 represents the vertical

asymptote.

Illustrative graph is inserted.I
