# Graph relationships

## Main Question or Discussion Point

i don't understand how a graph with 1/x^2 shape when the recipricol of the x-axis is ploted gives a linear mx+c graph.

what other relationships can you derive a graph from a graph?

If you want the shape of a $$\frac{1}{x^2}$$ graph check the attachment. As you can clearly see, the graph is not linear.
