on the same set of axes graph the curves 1+ (1/x) and 1/(x-1)
describe a transformation that maps the first curve onto the second
is there an algebraic way of doing this? well i'm sure there is, but can someone explain? how do you do that?
Of course not. Why on Earth would I post something helpful? When I do it's only by accident.
My mistake. I assumed that you would be familiar with the functional representation of various transformations.
Correct. But that answer is not unique. Another possible answer is the one I gave earlier. Horizontal translation of +1 units, vertical translation of +1 units.
Reflection in the line y = x is equivalent to finding the inverse ....
Yes: use function transormations and translations, as explained in the earlier solution.
Since you are not familiar with function notation, etc, you must be expected to use some other method. But I'm afraid we can't know what method you're supposed to use until you tell us. Sorry!
Note: Since matrices are generally covered well after basic algebra (such as function notation), you probably are not expected to use this methodology.
When you reply with the method(s) you're supposed to use, please include a clear listing of what you have tried so far, so we can "see" where you are having trouble and then try to provide assistance that you might find useful.
Thank you!
