This question already has an answer here:

Suppose that the conditions which ensure that the following equation is an hyperbola are verified:


What are the general expressions of the two asymptotes of the hyperbola?


I tried to follow the procedure here, but I get (I assumed all the coefficient greater than zero; if I did not give a sign to the coefficients, I cannot solve the limit):

$$\lim_{x \rightarrow + \infty} y(x) - mx = $$

$$ = \lim_{x \rightarrow + \infty} \frac{-E- Cx + \sqrt{(E + Cx)^2 - 4B(Dx + F)}}{2B} - \frac{2A}{C}x = - \infty$$

Thank you for your help.
