f(x) = 11 - (5x/5x^2 + 7x - 12)

by NOT, i repeat NOT looking at a graph of the function.

Thanks...

I think you meant

f(x) = 11 - 5x/(5x^2 + 7x - 12) which factors to

f(x) = 11 - 5x/((x-1)(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.
