# advice/help - c3 graph transformations/functions? watch

1. Hi, I'm a bit stuck on q b) and c)

a) express f(x) = 2x+5/x+3 - 1/(x+3)(x+2) as a single fraction in its simplest form, I got: 2x+3/x+2

b) hence show that f(x)=2-1/x+2 : I don't have a clue how to start answering this question

c) the curve y=1/x, x>0 is mapped onto the curve f(x) using 3 successive transformations T1, T2, T3, where T1 and T3 are translations

Describe fully T1, T2, and T3

Any help/advice would be great thankyou!

Please use brackets. Otherwise what you've written is confusing.
Assuming your b part is...hence show that f(x)=2-1/(x+2)

So you have . That's the same as
