Factor both the numerator and the denominator:

f(x) = [ 2(x + 5)(x - 5) ] / [ (x + 5)(x - 3) ]

Since the factor (x + 5 ) is found in both the numerator and the denominator, it produces a hole in the function at x = -5.

Cancelling out that term, we have: f(x) = [ 2(x - 5) ] / [ (x - 3) ]

There will be a vertical asymptote at x = 3 (because it makes the denominator zero).
