# How do you find the Vertical, Horizontal, and Oblique Asymptote given #R(x) = (3x) / (x^2 - 9)#?

##### 1 Answer

Vertical asymptotes:

Horizontal asymptote:

Oblique asymptote: none.

#### Explanation:

1) To find the vertical asymptotes factor the denominator and see what values of

The first vertical asymptote:

The second vertical asymptote:

2) To find the horizontal asymptote divide the highest degree term in the numerator by the highest degree term in the denominator and see what would happen to

3) There is no oblique asymptotes since
