## Homework Statement

Two students are arguing over the following equations. One student claims that the graphs are the same, the other student claims they are different. The equations are as follows:

## Homework Equations

y = x - 1 and y = x^2 - 1 / x + 1 (x + 1 is the divisor)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I believe the graphs are different, but an algebraic solution must be included. Please help solving this problem algebraically. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
