Answer:

Vertical asymptote is #x=0# and

two horizontal asymptotes #x=0# and #x=-3/2#

Explanation:

Vertical asymptote is given by putting denominator equal to zero.

Hence it is given by #2-2e^x=0# or #2e^x=2#

or #e^x=1# or #x=ln1=0#

For horizontal asymptote, let us find out #Lt_(x->oo)(3e^x)/(2-2e^x)#

Dividing numerator by #e^x# this is equal to

#Lt_(x->oo)3/(2e^-x-2)=-3/2# as #e^-oo=0#

Also #Lt_(x->-oo)(3e^x)/(2-2e^x)=0#

Hence we have two horizontal asymptotes #x=0# and #x=-3/2#
