1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is an easier way to graph 1/x? How I am currently doing it is in the "The attempt as a solution" section. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution The current way I graph some hyperbola like the one mentioned is by first finding the asymptotes. Then, I plug in some x-values and find out where, relative to the asymptotes, the points lie which will show where the curves are. Basically, my method involves plugging and chugging x-values which will show where the curves are on the coordinate plane. I was hoping there was an easier way to do this.
