Hi,

1) Just wondering what happens when you reciprocate a vertical asymptote.

For example if you are given the graph y=1/x and asked to reciprocate it, will the origin be an open circle or closed circle.

2) If you are NOT given the equation of y=1/x but given something that looks similar, how can you tell if you are going to get a straight line or a curve after reciprocation?

Thanks!
