    Find m

    Find the set of values of m such that the asymptotes of the curve,
    y = {3(m+1)x+m-2}/{(m-2)x+3m}
    intersect at a point above the line y = 3x-2 .

    The horizontal asymptote: y=\frac{3(m+1)}{m-2}

    The vertical asymptote: x=-\frac{3m}{m-2}

    Replace x and y in the equation of the line and find m.
