To find the vertical asymptote(s), set the denominator equal to zero and solve for ( x ). In this case, the denominator is ( x + 3 ), so:

( x + 3 = 0 )

( x = -3 )

Therefore, the vertical asymptote is ( x = -3 ).

There are no horizontal asymptotes for rational functions of the form ( \frac{f(x)}{g(x)} ), where ( f(x) ) and ( g(x) ) are polynomials, if the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator. Since the degree of the numerator is 1 and the degree of the denominator is also 1, there are no horizontal asymptotes.

To find slant asymptotes, divide the numerator by the denominator using polynomial long division. In this case:

( \frac{x + 2}{x + 3} = 1 - \frac{1}{x + 3} )

Since the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator after division, there are no slant asymptotes.

When evaluating a one-sided 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.
