### In order to linearise the graph for the table above, I must first find out its shape.What will the shape be for the table of values above

• A.

Linear

• B.

Hyperbola

• C.

Parabola

• D.

Truncus

• E.

Cubic

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
The shape of the graph for the given table of values will be a hyperbola. A hyperbola is a type of curve that has two branches, which are symmetric to each other. It is defined by the equation (x-h)^2/a^2 - (y-k)^2/b^2 = 1 or (y-k)^2/b^2 - (x-h)^2/a^2 = 1, where (h,k) is the center of the hyperbola and a and b determine the size and shape of the branches.

E. Cubic
Explanation
The shape of the table of values above will be cubic. A cubic function is a polynomial function of degree three, which means it can have a graph that is curved and has both positive and negative slopes. This is different from a linear function, which has a straight line graph, a hyperbola which has two branches that open in opposite directions, a parabola which has a U-shaped graph, or a truncus which is not a recognized mathematical shape.

E. Cubic
Explanation
The shape of the graph for the given table of values will be cubic. A cubic function is a polynomial function of degree 3, which means it has the form f(x) = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d. The graph of a cubic function is characterized by its curved shape, with both positive and negative slopes. It typically has one or two turning points and can exhibit a variety of different behaviors depending on the values of its coefficients. Therefore, the graph for the given table of values can be linearized by fitting a cubic function to it.

C. Parabola
Explanation
The shape for the given table of values is a parabola. A parabola is a U-shaped curve that can be either concave up or concave down. It is characterized by a quadratic equation, and its graph is symmetric with a vertex at the minimum or maximum point. To linearize the graph, one would need to find a linear equation that approximates the behavior of the parabola.

C. Parabola
Explanation
The shape of the table of values above will be a parabola. This can be determined by analyzing the pattern of the values in the table. A parabola is a U-shaped curve that can be either concave up or concave down. It is characterized by a quadratic equation, which typically includes an x^2 term. The values in the table may exhibit a quadratic relationship, where the y-values increase or decrease at a constant rate. This indicates that the graph will have a parabolic shape.

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
The shape of the graph for the given table of values will be a hyperbola. A hyperbola is a type of curve that is symmetrical and consists of two branches that open in opposite directions. It is characterized by the equation of the form x^2/a^2 - y^2/b^2 = 1 or y^2/b^2 - x^2/a^2 = 1. In order to linearize the graph, the equation needs to be transformed into a linear equation, which is not possible with a hyperbola. Therefore, the correct answer is hyperbola.

Explanation
The value for 1/x when y = 1 can be calculated by substituting y = 1 into the equation. Since x is not given in the question, we cannot determine the exact value of 1/x. However, the options -1/2, -0.5, and -.5 all represent the same value, which is the reciprocal of 2. Therefore, any of these options can be considered as the correct answer.
