**Problem: **Given_{}

**(a) ****Find the equation of the vertical asymptotes, if any.**

**Solution: **To find vertical asymptotes we look for divisions by 0. The denominator can be written as

_{}

The candidates to be asymptotes are_{}and_{}. If we evaluate these values at the enumerator we get

_{}

This means that the vertical asymptotes are_{}and_{}.

**(b) ****Find the equation of the horizontal asymptote, if any**

**Solution: **We find that

_{}

Therefore,_{}is the unique horizontal asymptote.
