## Main Question or Discussion Point

I found a strange theorem and a doubtful method in Stroud's book "Engineering mathematics":

I think, every polynomial equation will have two infinite roots (at +infinity and -infinity).

I also think that this method of the determination of an asymptote gives wrong results if f(x) is a polynomial with a high degree.

Are the theorem and the method in this book wrong?
