because As x increases, y increases.

- SolomonZelman

`y decreases` means `y (on the graph) is going down`
`y increases` means `y (on the graph) is going up`
`x decreases` means `x (on the graph) is going to the left`
`x increases` means `x (on the graph) is going to the right`

- SolomonZelman

don't listen it is not B

- SolomonZelman

Stop giving out answer - first of all. Secondly, stop giving out incorrect answers.

- SolomonZelman

When x goes to the left, the x is decreasing, right?
As x decreases (goes to the left), how does the y behave?

- SolomonZelman

I should say:
1. as the graph goes to the right, does it go down or up?
2. as the graph goes to the left, does it go down or up?

- anonymous

it goes down then up right?

- anonymous

So as x increases, y decreases and then increases.

- SolomonZelman

but the more it goes to the right (from the y-axis) the graph is going down, or is it going up?

- SolomonZelman

oh, I am sorry @OregonDuck

- SolomonZelman

B is the right answer.
(Although not accurate at all, yet the best option)

- SolomonZelman

well, these options are abstruse for a single precise ineterpetation.

- SolomonZelman

interpretation*

- SolomonZelman

I would say that `as x→±∞, y→∞`

- SolomonZelman

as x gets very large, or very small the y increases.

- SolomonZelman

or perhaps B is incorrect.

it has to be i asked my brother he is in collage
