I'm taking this math class and I'm suppose to find the vertical, horizontal and oblique asymptote, if any for the following equation...
f(x) = 11  (5x/5x^2 + 7x  12)
by NOT, i repeat NOT looking at a graph of the function.
Thanks...

Your school is NOT the subject.

f(x) = 11  (5x/5x^2 + 7x  12)
I think you meant
f(x) = 11  5x/(5x^2 + 7x  12) which factors to
f(x) = 11  5x/((x1)(5x+12))
V.A. when the denominator is zero
> x = 1, 12/5
H.A. what happens when x becomes ± "large"
the algebraic term at the end > 0
so y = 11
I don't "see" any oblique asymptotes.

Thank you very much, I have been trying to solve this the entire day... It's so simple... for some reason, I keep on pulling the 5 out of the equation.... This helps a lot.... Thanks...
