Use polynomial long division to change this into a form where the order of the numerator is less than the order of the denominator. It should be clearer then.
The problem I'm trying to find the oblique asymptote for is: 8x^3+1/x^2-5x+6
I know the answers to this specific problem(vertical asymptotes at: x=2,x=3; oblique asymptote at:y=x+5) but I don't know how to arrive at the answer for the oblique asymptote for this specific problem. Can anyone help? I know about how to use long division to solve most of these types of problems, but this one I don't know how to achieve the correct answer for the oblique asymptote even with long division.
I understand that I should use polynomial long division, but even so I still don't arrive at the correct answer. Perhaps my calculations are wrong. If you've tried it already using long division and arrived at the oblique asymptote I have listed above, would you mind showing me your steps?
