    1) I don't understand what you're asking. Since you have shown the relationship between x and y, surely what you have written is the rule...

    2) Is it \frac{3}{x + 2} or \frac{3}{x} + 2?

    The rule is given: y = 3/x+2. If your question is what type of function is it, then the answer is 'rectangular hyperbola'.

    By the way, do you mean y = 3/(x+2) or y = (3/x) + 2? Not that it really matters, the type of function is the same for both.

    The rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you", of course!
