    Problem drawing graph, please help!!

    Hi everyone, i'm struggling to draw the graph of f(x) = 4/(x+3)

    I'm just wondering how you go about plotting a graph like this and the process you use to do it. Thanks for your time

    Well, first think about the domain of the function. Then think about some limits of interest.

    Learn to draw y = 1/x, first then realise what transformation maps y = 1/x on to y = 1/(x+3). The 4 only represents a one-way stretch in the y-direction, doesn't it.
