# What are the asymptotes for (x^2-3x+7)/(x+2)?

Sep 12, 2015

Oblique(slant) asymptote y= x-5 and vertical asymptote x= -2

#### Explanation:

After long division , the function can be written as

$x - 5 + \frac{17}{x + 2}$

This indicates oblique(slant) asymptote y= x-5 and a vertical asymptote x= -2
