**MathMate**, Monday, May 23, 2011 at 9:14amThe answers for the horizontal asymptotes are correct.

Hints for the remainder:

1. All polynomials have a domain of R, or (-∞,∞).

2. Horizontal asymptotes are finite values to which the function approaches when x→±∞.

3. Vertical asymptotes for a rational function (i.e. polynomials in both numerator and denominator) occur when the denominator equals zero.

4. The domain of a rational function is therefore (-&infin,∞)-points at which vertical asymptotes occur.
