#### Answer:

**Vertical asymptote is at** **,horizontal asymptote is at** **(x axis).**

#### Explanation:

Vertical asymptote occur when denominator is zero.

Vertical asymptote is at

Horizontal asymptote:

Horizontal asymptote is at

If the numerator's degree is greater (by a margin of 1), then we

have a slant asymptote , so there is no slant asymptote.
