yea i am trying to determine what the graph would look like

But I am thy Master Chief? http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D.5x%2B8

mattt9 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it's 1/x not (1/2)x there chief
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well it 1/(x+8)

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Preposterous! How could I have made such a delinquent mistake? http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D%281%2Fx%29%2B8

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but (x8) is different from x+8 when graphing

you know anyone can type numbers in to wolfram

i'm talking to chief

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yea i want to know how to graph the thing
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well of course, although I could rule the Earth if it was off limits to everyone but me...

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i can go to a graphing calculator and not come here but it doesnt teach me how to graph it
 2 years ago

mattt9 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i disagree chief. conversation over.
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So i assume that I would substitute random numbers for X to graph it?
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Make a table and input numbers for x like 0, and then see what comes out as y. Keep getting numbers until you can make a decent graph.
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so if x= 0 y would = 1/8
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Disagree with what? Obviously, no s**t anyone can use it! I linked a page to the graph, to make things easier even though I misunderstood the question.
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Umm, Well, you put 0 in for x. This cancels out the numerator of 1 above it. The answer would be 8.
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Because 1 divided 0 is nothing, 0.

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i cant figure out how to put the one over both in here
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in the original problem there is no parenthesis
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh, that's a different story. Yes, it would com eout as \[1/8\]
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because x+8 and (x+8) would be different shifts when graphing wouldnt it?
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, the solution graph would differ.
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
one would shift the graph up and one would shift the graph left
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so i am assuming there would be a hole in my graph at 8
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because 8+8 = 0
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Sorry, it appears so. I have not taken this but look: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=y%3D1%2F%28x%2B8%29%2C+y%3D%281%2Fx%29%2B8

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I entered the two equations.
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the first one is correct. Thats where I was confused
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because at x=9
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, it does move the graph to the right if you seclude the +8
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the equation would result in a negative
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
hence a verticle asymtope at 8

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
x can never be 8 )

I would love to answer your question here but I really don't know. I'm in eighth grade and enrolled in Algebra 2. Sorry!

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you did great, and you helped me answer a college calculus question
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just remember that the denominator can never = 0 so if it does you have a hole
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
hence for 1/(8+8)
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh wow, Thank you! And yes, because you can't have, for instance, 4 slices of nothing, right?
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the value doesnt exist
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Like, 4/0
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so in your graph that spot would be left open
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it doesnt exist
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, I know what you mean. It's like trying to have one piece of nothing. That doesn't exist!
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I understand now.
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so in this case we have an asymptope which means we can get closer and closer to 8
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yup, I get it now thanks!
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
such as 7.999
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the graph goes up and down at 8 infinitely
 2 years ago

MasterChief Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think so.
