How do you find the point where the graph crosses the oblique asymptote?

If you mean how to find an oblique asymptote of a function. you basically get it into the form

$$f(x)=(ax+b) + \frac{g(x)}{h(x)}$$

and then as $$x\rightarrow \infty, \frac{g(x)}{h(x)}\rightarrow 0$$
and so $$f(x)\rightarrow ax+b$$ and that it is the oblique asymptote

I know how to find the oblique asymptote, but my question was how to find the point on the oblique asymptote where the graph crosses.

When it switches sides.
