The vertical, horizontal, and slant asymptotes
I was wondering if anyone could help me out here I am stuck on my homework it asks for the vertical, horizontal, and slant asymptotes and gives me a problem like this

$y= 1/(x-2)$

my teacher said use a graphing calculator but is there a way to do these without?

Thanks
