Vertical asymptote: $x=-\frac{3}{2}$ Horizontal asymptote: $y=-\frac{7}{2}$

Work Step by Step

For the vertical asymptote, the denominator must be equal to $0$: $3+2x=0$ $2x=-3$ $x=-\frac{3}{2}$ The degree of both the denominator and the numerator are equal to 1. The horizontal asymptote is the ratio between the leading coefficients: $y=-\frac{7}{2}$
