List all vertical and horizontal asymptotes, if any, of f(x) and explain (using limits) why each is an asymptote.

Consider the function f(x) = [(x − 1)(x − 3)]/[2x(x+1)]
I think the vertical asymptotes are 0 and -1
and the horizontal asymptote is 1/2 
please correct me if I am wrong...
I just need help explaining this using limits, as the question asks.
