    Are you familiar with the function 1/x? Your graph will look almost identical to that function, only stretched a bit. |dw:1328607010300:dw| Be careful of the asymptotes, those lines will draw near the axis but never actually come in contact with them. As for finding ordered pairs, simply create a chart like this: |dw:1328607095019:dw| then sub in values for x, and solve for y. You can use any x-value you want, though I'd advise you to stick with small ones, such as -2, -1, 1, 2 Hope this helps, good luck!

    Substitute numbers in for X to find the Y making ordered pairs. Graph the order pairs and draw in your curves as shown in the attached picture.

    Oh right, forgot about the range. As seen in the graph, the y values can be greater than 0, and they can be less than 0, but they can never actually = 0. So, your range would be {YER | y < 0 < y}. This reads as "Y is an element of the real number, such that y is smaller or greater than zero." If you're confused about the YER (y is an element of the real number) part, don't worry about it too much. For now just understand that it's required at the beginning of each range description.

    ProfessorDaddy's example is an excellent one.

    For the chart, you're going to want to do the exact same thing as in ProfDaddy's previous example. Make a chart showing X and Y values, create any x values that you want to use, and then solve for x. Then plot those points on a graph and draw in the rest of the curve.

    Sorry if the drawing seems lazy, it's 5AM here and I'm still not done an assignment. Good luck! |dw:1328608123886:dw|
