The function r(x) = 1/(x + 3) is transformed by a translation of 3 units up and 5 units to the right. The transformed function passes through the point (x,7). The value of x to the nearest hundredth is ___

I can't seem to remember how to find out whether a a function passes through a specific point and was looking for some help.

Thanks very much.
