# Thread: y = 3/x+2. What is the rule?

1. ## y = 3/x+2. What is the rule?

Thanks what about y = 3/x+2 ? what is the rule?

2. 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.

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