# How woild you draw this graph? watch

1. *would

Draw the graph of: y = (1/x-1), Do you re-arrange it first? If so, what would the first step be? Also, the formula when plotting a graph goes something like change in y/change in x, is change in y at the top of the formula like I've stated or is it actually change in x/change in y?

No rearrangement needed

I assume that you know what y=1/x looks like
This is a simple transformation

We can't tell whether that is or

Better still learn LaTex.

Sorry it's the first one, the one where the denominator is x-1

Ok well assuming you know what looks like then this is just a translation one unit in the positive x direction.

Ok so is it just the graph of y =1/x then a translation of 1 to the right?
