Is that diagonal? Like instead of reflecting across the x or y axis directly?

To get the inverse of the graph, would I flip 1/x to just x + 5?

inverse does not mean "reciprocal" that is for numbers inverse means inverse function

so if \(f(x)=\frac{1}{x}+5\) that means a) take the reciprocal b) add 5 inverse is a) subtract 5 b) take the reciprocal i.e. \(f^{1}(x)=\frac{1}{x5}\)
