a) as x --->∞

the curve is approximated by

y = x^2/2x^2 = 1/2

approaching from below y=1/2 for positive x's

and approaching from above y = 1/2 for negative large x's

Anyway, y = 1/2 is the horizontal asymtote

b) at vertical asymptotes, the denominator is zero, so

x = -3 and x = 7/2 are vertical asymptotes

c) since the numerator and denominator are of the same degree, there is no oblique asymptote
