Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's 1/x not (1/2)x there chief

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea i want to know how to graph the thing

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i disagree chief. conversation over.

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So i assume that I would substitute random numbers for X to graph it?

MasterChief

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Make 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.

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if x= 0 y would = 1/8

MasterChief

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Disagree 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.

MasterChief

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

MasterChief

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i cant figure out how to put the one over both in here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in the original problem there is no parenthesis

MasterChief

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

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because x+8 and (x+8) would be different shifts when graphing wouldnt it?

MasterChief

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, the solution graph would differ.

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one would shift the graph up and one would shift the graph left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i am assuming there would be a hole in my graph at 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I entered the two equations.

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first one is correct. Thats where I was confused

MasterChief

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, it does move the graph to the right if you seclude the +8

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the equation would result in a negative

ChrisV

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would love to answer your question here but I really don't know. I'm in eighth grade and enrolled in Algebra 2. Sorry!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you did great, and you helped me answer a college calculus question

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just remember that the denominator can never = 0 so if it does you have a hole

MasterChief

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

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so in your graph that spot would be left open

MasterChief

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

ChrisV

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so in this case we have an asymptope which means we can get closer and closer to 8

MasterChief

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup, I get it now thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the graph goes up and down at 8 infinitely
