    This wording is confusing. There's not just one answer to this question, but many answers. The "something over something" part is the remainder after long division.

    Do you know how to find the slant asymptote of a function using long division? This is the reverse of that process.

    This is a duplicate of a question that was posted yesterday. The OP seemed to have solved it. I don't know why it was posted again.
