Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Compared to the graph of y =1/x , the graph of y =3/x – 4 is a vertical stretch by a factor of 3 and a translation of 4 units left. Compared to the graph of y =1/x , the graph of y = 3/x – 4 is a vertical shrink by a factor of 3 and a translation of 4 units up. Compared to the graph of y =1/x , the graph of y =3/x – 4 is a vertical stretch by a factor of 3 and a translation of 4 units down. d. Compared to the graph of y =1/x , the graph of y =3/x – 4 is a vertical shrink by a factor of 3 and a translation of 4 units down.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You describe the graphs in this manner. You say: y = 3/x  4 is the graph of 1/x amplified by 3 and shifted down by 4 units.
