Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you mean \[f(x) = \frac{ 1 }{ x }+1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your question isn't clear to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or maybe: \[f(x) = \frac{ 1 }{ x+5 }1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well the (x+5) would tell you it's a horizontal shift in the left axis, and the 1 would be vertical units, can you figure out if it's up or down? Note the graph of f(x) = 1/x looks as such dw:1436144361958:dw it's asymptotic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11, 4 what ever, same thing applies as I mentioned above, me saying +1 may have confused TSO for the slight second there haha as I did 54. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol so the shiftsare 1,4 @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No there's a vertical shift down by 4 units.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is "there is a verticle shift down by 4"? @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is how your graph should look, with the shifts I've mentioned above, via https://www.desmos.com/calculator dw:1436145206647:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is also a horizontal shift of (x+5) units to the left.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what I do next? @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's it, those are the shifts of your equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the shifts are 1,4 and (x+5) @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Where is the 1 coming from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk im confused... so its 4 and (x+5)? @Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well you can put that if you want, but I wouldn't if I didn't understand it, the original graph is dw:1436145764598:dw now we add to it, which makes the shifts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1436145781683:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then we do a shift of 1/(x+5) which gives dw:1436145894326:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's a bit messy just try plugging in all the shifts yourself on this site, and I think you will understand it: https://www.desmos.com/calculator
