Hi again

f(x) = (√(x^2+1)/(x-2))

I think the vertical asymptote is 2 but what is the horizontal asymptote?

How do you figure this out?

Thanks in advance

I am finding it hard to deal with the square root signs so if you can walk me through it I would appreciate it.

The examples I have found seem to show getting rid of the x's on the top of the formula but you haven't done that with the last one. I am expecting to come up with a number and I don't know what that is on the first one let alone the second one. Do I substitute 0 for x at some point?
