Send me an Email if you need additional explanation of this! If the degrees of the numerator and denominator are the same, then there is a horizontal asymptote at y = (ratio of the leading coefficients of the numerator and denominator. In this case, it will be y=-10/1=-10. Horizontal asymptote at y =-10. R^2 Dr. Robert J. Rapalje
