# Finding the Asymptotes of a Hyperbola

Given a hyperbola of the form:

$$r=\frac{A}{1+Bsinθ+Dcosθ}$$

what are the polar equations for the asymptotes?

Oddly, plotting this with a computer will result in the asymptotes being plotted as well.

You can always change it into cartesian coordinates but the work can be tedious. I have not done conics in polar plane in a long time, but I can add snapshots of of a book on how to do so If you would like.
