# Horizontal and Oblique Asymptotes

### By Daisha Hopkins, Tana Aley, Quaveon Richardson

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

Definitions:

**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.
