    It looks like the graph of 1/x translated by one unit to the left (negative x direction).

    Is that 1/(x+1) or (1/x) + 1?

    Minus? If so it's 1/x translated to the right by one unit.

    For rational functions in the form y = ax+b / cx+d
    Equation for the vertical asymptote is the zero of the denominator (i.e -d/c)

    And the equation for the horizontal asymptote is equal to a/c ( notice that a is the coefficient of x, so when x doesn't exist in the numerator, the horizontal asymptote = zero )

    Find the asymptotes and draw you graph.

    Let f(x) = 1/x. Then what is 1/(x-1) in terms of f(x)? Use this to find the translation of f(x).
