I don't know how to find it.

**Reiny**, Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 7:53pmy = 2x + 1 is a straight line with a slope of 2

To be vertical the slope would have to be undefined, and the equation would have the form

x = k, where k is some constant.

no vertical asymptote.

**Luckylin**, Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 8:01pmThank you~ and as for horizontal, the asymptote would be y=0?

**Reiny**, Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 8:11pmWe don't actually speak of asymptotes for straight lines

but, yes, a horizontal asymptote would have the form

y = k, where k is a constant
