    They are asking at $\displaystyle \displaystyle x \to \infty$

    if the slope of the curve is equal to the slope of the asymptote.

    So first find the slope of the asymptote, then find $\displaystyle \displaystyle y'(\infty)$

    you may need to use some properties of limits.

    Are they equal?
