    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

    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.
