f(x)=[5x^34x^28x+9]/[2x^21x3]
Find the equation of the nonvertical asymptote.
y =
Does f(x) intersect its nonvertical asymptote? (yes or no)
What is the smallest value of x at which f(x) intersects its nonvertical asymptote? ( Enter No in the question blank if you answered no above.)
I got the answer to the first two parts, y=2.5x.75 and yes. But i don't know how to figure out the last part of the question. Please help :)

MathMate,
For Part 3, It would be a question of finding the intersection between the function
f(x) and the oblique asymptote g(x)=5x/23/4.
If there is a solution, look for the smallest value of the zeroes.
I found only one at x=27/5.
