# How do you find the asymptotes for (x-3)/(x-2)?

Vertical asymptotes occur when the denominator of the
rational function is $0$.

In this question this would occur when $x - 2 = 0$ i.e, $x = 2$

[ Horizontal asymptotes can be found when the degree of the

numerator and the degree of the denominator are equal. ]

Here they are both of degree $1$ and so are equal.

The horizontal asymptote is found by taking the ratio of leading

coefficients .

hence y$= \frac{1}{1} = 1$
