# How do you find the horizontal asymptote for h(x) = (x+2 )/ (2x-5)?

Jan 24, 2016

$y = \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

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 a horizontal asymptote
exists .

The asymptote is found by taking the ratio of leading
coefficients.

ie y = $\frac{1}{2}$
