### Graphing reciprocals of linear functions

We know that taking the reciprocal of a very large number will grant us a very small number. Conversely, if we take the reciprocal of a very small number, we will obtain a very small number. What will happen if we take the reciprocal of a linear function? In this section, we will learn about the concept behind the reciprocal of a linear function, as well as how to graph it, while following the "5-steps Approach" noted below.
