if you have n(x)/d(x) = ax^m/bx^n
if m > n, then H.A does not exist
if m=n , then H.A. = a/b
if m< n, then HA is line y=0
if m > n there is a slant asymptote.. to obtain it, use long division for algebraic expressions
you will get an equation of a line + some remainder and then take the limit as x approaches + or - infinity and you get the slant (oblique asymptote)
don't know if you wanted all that, but it cant hurt!!
