my book doesn't list this one. lim f(x)=5 x-> a+ a.horizontal asymptote b.vertical asymptote c.both d.neither (notice it's as x approaches a from the right)

And since you're finding the limit of a constant, the limit IS that constant.

So b and c are out. I would say neither because a horizontal asymptote deals with x going to infinity and the function being bounded and this looks just like a one sided limit.
