To find the asymptotes for the rational function ( \frac{x  3}{x  2} ), we look at the behavior of the function as ( x ) approaches certain values.

Vertical Asymptote: Vertical asymptotes occur where the denominator of the function becomes zero, but the numerator does not. In this case, the vertical asymptote occurs when ( x  2 = 0 ), which gives ( x = 2 ).

Horizontal Asymptote: To find the horizontal asymptote, we examine the degrees of the numerator and denominator. If the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator, the horizontal asymptote is the xaxis (y = 0). If the degrees are equal, the horizontal asymptote is the ratio of the leading coefficients. If the degree of the numerator is greater than the degree of the denominator, there is no horizontal asymptote.
In ( \frac{x  3}{x  2} ), both the numerator and denominator have a degree of 1. Therefore, the horizontal asymptote is the ratio of the leading coefficients, which are both 1. So, the horizontal asymptote is ( y = 1 ).
Therefore, the vertical asymptote is ( x = 2 ), and the horizontal asymptote is ( y = 1 ).

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
