1. Given the functions f(x)=1/x−3   (to the side of the fraction)  +1      and g(x)=1/x+4     (to the side of the fraction)+3 .

Which statement describes the transformation of the graph of function f onto the graph of function g?

Options:

The graph shifts 2 units right and 7 units down.

The graph shifts 7 units right and 2 units down.

The graph shifts 2 units left and 7 units up.

The graph shifts 7 units left and 2 units up.

2.

What are the coordinates of the hole in the graph of the function f(x) ?

f(x)=x^2+3x−28/x+7

_____, _______

Thanks again. Happy Valentnes day.

First one

f(x) =   1 / (x - 3) + 1

g(x)  = 1 / (x + 4) + 3

g(x) is translated 7 units to the left and 2 units up

Second one

(x^2 + 3x - 28)  / ( x + 7)       factor the numerator

[ ( x + 7)   (x - 4) ]  /( x + 7)        cancel the ( x + 7)

x - 4

Since  x = - 7   makes the denominator of the original fraction = 0.....the "hole" occurs at x = -7

To find the y coordinate of the "hole"...put -7 into   x - 4    for x   =  - 7 - 4  =  -11

So....the "hole" occurs at  ( -7, -11)   Feb 14, 2019
