Q:
# What is the oblique asymptote of the function f(x) = the quantity of x squared plus 7 x plus 11, all over x plus 5?

Accepted Solution

A:

So its basically x^2+7x+11/ x+5

You have to divide the denominator by the numerator. You can use synthetic division or long division.

[-5] . 1 . 7 . 11

--------------------------

x + 2 + 1/x+5

You ignore the remainder, therefore the answer is y = x+2
