# Thread: Finding asymptotes

1. ## Finding asymptotes

Hi
Can someone tell me how many asymptotes the following function has.

$\frac{x^2-x-6}{x^2+2x+1}$

eventually you get this, by dividing:

$1 - \frac{3x-7}{x^2+2x+1}$

$1 - \frac{3x-7}{(x+1)(x+1)}$

therefore i got 2 asymptotes:

$y=1, x=-1$

P.S

2. Given your division is correct I agree with your answer.
