Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1rewrite as y = 2/x... recognize this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also if f(x) = f(x) then it is symmetric about y. if f(x) = f(x) it is symmetric about the origin. if f(x) = y or y then it is symmetric about x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is, x: > y and x > y then it is not a function but is symmetric about the xaxis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0trying to keep up but im sure y=2/x is a function and i wanted to know if any of the combinations of symmetry xaxis,yaxis,origin(or just at least one of these) are possible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1learn to do this: \[f(x) = \frac{ 2 }{ x }\Rightarrow f(x) = \frac{ 2 }{ x }=\frac{ 2 }{ x }\Rightarrow f(x) = f(x)\] so it's symmetric about the origin. since it's a function. it can't be symmetric about the xaxis.
