#### Answer:

There is a vertical asymptote at

There is a horizontal asymptote at

#### Explanation:

First step is always to simplify what you have.

As you know, dividing by a very large number results in almost zero. Therefore,

Similarly,

Hence there is a horizontal asymptote at

Also note that

There is a vertical asymptote at

Please refer to the graph below.
