Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y_{1}=\frac{1}{x},\ y_{2}=\frac{5}{x+6}\]Can you visualize y1 or y2? If so, draw a sketch of the graph(s)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It might help to think of y2 as\[y_{2}=5(\frac{1}{x+6})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats what my graph is suppose to look like, but I need to know how they compare.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the second one y = (5/x) +6 or y = (5) / (x+6) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you have the graphs for y = 1/x and y = (5/x) +6 not (5) / (x +6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^Thats the right graph but how do they compare

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4i showed points on both the graphs when the +6 term comes the graph is moved to the left 6 steps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4it does both are same things but the one graph is a little wide near the origin and u get y=5 for x=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4and then it is moved to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4u see the magniture of the function increased with multiplying by 5 and graph shifted to the left with the 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For an equation to compare them... lets call them f1(x) and f2(x) \[f _{1}(x) = y _{1} =\frac{ 1 }{ x }\]\[ f_{2}(x) = y _{2} =\frac{ 5 }{ x+6 } = 5\left( \frac{ 1 }{ x+6 } \right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f _{2}(x) =5 \times f _{1}(x+6)\]
