Answer:

There are two vertical asymptotes: #x=2# and #x=-3#

Explanation:

The denominator #x^2+x-6# is #0# when #x# is #2# or #-3#.

Neither of these values make the numerator equal to #0#, so we cannot reduce (simplify) the fraction.

Therefore, we have vertical asymptotes at #2# and at #-3#.

The equations of the lines are #x=2# and #x=-3#.
