    Horizontal asymptote

    Will you please check the horizontal asymptote for (x^2+x-12): (x^2-4)
    Horizontal asymptote y=1 intercepted at (8,1)

    Is this correct? Thank you

    the horizontal asymptote is correct. what intercept are you talking about?

    Intercept

    The problem states: Locate the horizontal or oblique asymptotes, if any. Determine points, if any, at which the graph of the function intersects the asymptote.

    weird question, usually they don't care about the intercepts. but you are correct in all your answers.
