By: Kourtney Durrant

Reciprocal Function:

f(x)=1/x

Domain: (- ∞, 0) U (0, ∞)

Range: (- ∞, 0) U (0, ∞)

Increasing: n/a

Decreasing: (- ∞, 0) & (0, ∞)

Minimum: n/a

Maximum:n/a

intercepts: Never crosses the x or y axis.

Properties of the Reciprocal function:

  • Odd function
  • No intercept
  • The graph is symmetric with it's origin

Different visual examples of a reciprocal function:

Also:
