Horizontal and Oblique Asymptotes

By Daisha Hopkins, Tana Aley, Quaveon Richardson

There are three different ways to find horizontal and oblique asymptotes.

Rule to Horizontal, Oblique, and Slant


Asymptote:  A line that the graph of a function approaches, but never intersects.

Horizontal Asymptote: Horizontal lines that the graph of a function approaches as x tends to plus or minus infinity.

Oblique/Slant: Neither parallel nor at a right angle to a specified or implied line; slanting. When a linear asymptote is not horizontal or vertical, it is called an oblique or slant asymptote.
