To find the oblique asymptote of the function P(x) = 4x^5 / (x^3 - 1), we first perform polynomial long division to divide the numerator by the denominator. After performing the division, the quotient will represent the linear part of the oblique asymptote. The remainder will indicate any remaining terms beyond the linear part.

The long division yields:

4x^2 + 0x + 4

Therefore, the quotient of the division is 4x^2 + 4. This represents the linear part of the oblique asymptote.

To find the remainder, we subtract the product of the divisor (x^3 - 1) and the quotient (4x^2 + 4) from the original function:

P(x) - (x^3 - 1)(4x^2 + 4)

After simplifying, the remainder turns out to be 4x + 4.

Therefore, the oblique asymptote of the function P(x) is given by the linear function y = 4x^2 + 4, and there is an additional term 4x + 4 which represents the remainder but does not contribute to the oblique asymptote.

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.
