OK I am given the graph of a reciprocal function the asymptotes are x=1 and x=-1(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Quadrants ____1____|____2_____

3 | 4

Ok in the first quadrant there is a > looking curve going through the invariant point 1 and in the second quadrant there is a < curve going through the invariant point 1. then there is a parabola with a max of -1 inbetween the asymptotes.

The question says determine the equation of the graph, so I need to find f(x) and then to get the reciprocal just put 1/(f(X)). I sketched f(x) but how do I find out the eqn?
