How do I graph a horizontal asymptote of (x+3)/2?

Without using technology, to graph (x^2+x-2)/ (2x-4)

Byron S.

(x+3)/2 isn't a horizontal asymptote, it's a slant asymptote. If that's what you're trying to graph, write it in standard linear form y = (1/2) x + 3/2 and plot points or use the slope. Odd values of x will give whole numbers for y.

How do i know where the graph intersects the slant asymptote?
