What is the solution for y=1/x (1 over x)? I do not know the answer for this equation, please help. The equation is y=1/x. I also have another equation, y=2x. What is the solution for both of these equations. Thxs!
Both of these equations can only be solved by drawing a graph as they do not have a definite answer.
If x is 1 y is 1/1 = 1
if x is 2, y = 1/2 = 0.5
if x is 3, y = 1/3 = 0.33
If x is -1, y = 1/-1 = - 1
if x is - 2 y = 1/-2 = - 1/2 = - 0.5 etc.
It will form a hyperbola
For y = 2x
is very easy. First you make a table of values for x and y. Pick some
values for x (such as -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3). Then to use the x values
to get the corresponding y values by plugging them into the equation.
