    linear graph looks like this |dw:1439405943555:dw| or |dw:1439405965158:dw|

    Plug in points and graph them if you do not know the patterns or behaviors of it.

    plug x=1 the denominator is 4/4=1 so (1,1)

    if x gets bigger in the denominator and the numerator is 4, what number is it approaching?

    \[\frac{ 4 }{ x+3 }\] that is the equation as x gets bigger the denominator increases 4/a very large number will equals or approaching 0 In other words 4/x+3 is decreasing slowly because 4/4=1 4/5=0.8 4/6=0.66 that it decreases in a curve, which is not linear.

    4/(a very large number)
