Find the horizontal and vertical asymptotes of f(x).

**Reiny**, Friday, January 25, 2013 at 6:42pmTo have a vertical asymptote , the denominator must be zero

so, 3x^2 + 12x - 15 = 0

x^2 + 4x - 5 = 0

(x+5)(x-1) = 0

x = -5 or x = 1

so we have two vertical asymptotes,

x = -5 and x = 1

for the horizontal asymptote, let x become large

then we are left with x^2/3x^2 or 1/3

V.A. : y = 1/3
