I tried to Google the answer to my question, but I can't find a site that gives me a detailed explanation. help. thank you.

No, if you are dealing with polynomial fractions, to get a slant asymptote, you have to have the numerator just one degree greater than the denominator, so that the asymptote is a straight line. If it is greater than one degree, the asymptote is a "curve".
