    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

    Given your division is correct I agree with your answer.
