# How do you find vertical, horizontal and oblique asymptotes for #(x^2 - 5x + 6)/ (x - 3)#?

##### 1 Answer

Remember: You cannot have three asymptotes at the same time. If the Horizontal Asymptote exists, the Oblique Asymptote doesn't exist. Also,

Here,

Please, take a look at the picture.

The oblique/slant asymptote is found by dividing the numerator by the denominator (long division.)

Notice that I did not do the long division in the way some people excepted me to. I always use the "French" way because I've never understood the English way, also I'm a francophone :) but it is the same answer.

Hope this helps :)
