**Example 1:**

f(x) = 2 - x

x intercept is (2, 0) and y-intercept is (0,2)

f(x) is positive when xε(-∞, 2) and negative xε(2, ∞)

f(x) is decreasing when xε(-∞, ∞)

reciprocal od the function is g(x) = 1 / 2 - x

reciprocal function is positive when xε(-∞, 2) and negative xε(2, ∞)

It is increasing when xε(-∞, 2) and when xε(2, ∞)

**Example 2:**

f(x) = 9 - x^2

x-intercepts are 3 and -3

f(x) is positive when xε(-3, 3) and negative when xε(-∞, -3) and when xε(3, ∞)

f (x) is increasing when xε(-∞, 0) and decreasing when xε(0, ∞)

g(x) = 1 / 9- x^2

reciprocal function is positive when xε(-3, 3) and negative xε(-∞, -3) and when xε(3, ∞)

It is decreasing when xε(-∞, -3) and when xε( -3, 0) and increasing when xε(0, 3) and when xε(3, ∞)
