How do I graph
a) y=1/x
b) y=1/(x-2) + 3

State the domain and range of both.

Hello
y=1/x is the classic hyperbola
y=1/(x-2)+3 can be derived from the classic one using a translation of vector 2i+3j

I found online grapher.

Just type $1/x$ or whatever function you want.

This is too vague and probably not the best way to explain this problem to the OP. Vectors are not necessary.

That is a good tool, but I suspect the OP needs to learn how to do this without a graphing aid.
