how do I graph these?
i have 2...
I tried graphing this but did not end up with the graph depicted in the answers....could anyone help me out with how to solve/graph this?
What I did:
x can't equal -2, y can't equal 0
x > -2; y=1/x+2 ( i graphed this line)
x<-2; y=1/-x-2 (i graphed this but it fell below the x-axis)
the second graph (1/-x-2) is supposed to be flipped up
I understand why (its absolute value so everything is positive) but when i graph it it doesn't end up that way....
how to i solve/graph it properly? is there something wrong with my method?
