    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I understand there is no vertical asymptotes and can usually get the horizontal ,but can't understand with the exponential.

    Your image is fuzzy and unreadable. Take the trouble to actually type out the problem---that is actually the PF preferred standard!

    Noted :) , here goes:

    f(x)=1/1+e3x

    Try graphing it, and then go from there.

    You should enclose that denominator in parentheses.
    f(x)=1/(1+e3x)​

    What happens to e3x as x gets very large ?

    What happens to e3x as x gets very negative ?
