Answer:

The vertical asymptote is #x=3#
The horizontal asymptote is #y=0#
No slant asymptote

Explanation:

As you cannot divide by #0#, #x!=3#

The vertical asymptote is #x=3#

The degree of the numerator is #<# than the degree of the denominator, there is no slant asymptote.

#lim_(x->-oo)y=lim_(x->-oo)4/x=0^-#

#lim_(x->+oo)y=lim_(x->+oo)4/x=0^+#

The horizontal asymptote is #y=0#

graph{(y-(4/(x-3)))(y)(y-300x+800)=0 [-11.25, 11.245, -5.63, 5.62]}
