1. ## 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?

3. Intercept of the horizontal asymptote with the function

well, yeah. but why would you be required to find such a thing?

5. ## 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.
