    1. The equation y=-4x/x^2+36 = -4/x + 36 has no y-intercept since y is undefined for x=0. The x-intercept is (x, 0) where x is the solution to the equation
    -4/x + 36 = 0, which implies
    4/x = 36
    x/4 = 1/36
    x = 1/9.
    Thus the x-intercept is (1/9,0).

    The equation y = -4/x + 36 does not have odd or even ...

    Solution Summary

    We find the x and y intercepts and symmetry axes of the graphs corresponding to given equations and find the midpoints of given line segments.
