Horizontal and Oblique Asymptotes
By Daisha Hopkins, Tana Aley, Quaveon Richardson
There are three different ways to find horizontal and oblique asymptotes.
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.
