f(x)= x^2+5x-7 / x-4

state domain, find vertical, horizontal and oblique asymptotes if any. I found the domain to be (-inf.,4)U(4, inf.) and vertical asymptote at x=4 am I right? can someone help me with the rest?

**Reiny**, Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 5:26pmwhat about the oblique asymptote ?

divide out the right side (I used synthetic division)

f(x) = x + 9 + 29/(x-4)

so the oblique asymtote is

y = x+9
