Math 
Steve,
1.
y = x^2+1
This is always positive, with its minimum value at x=0, where y=1. The range is [1,∞0, but that's not where it is increasing.
Now, the question asks about the reciprocal function z = 1/y
z = 1/(x^2+1)
Where y increases, z decreases, and vice versa. So, z is increasing on (∞, 0), answer B
2. OK
3. None of the above. Would be C, but the horizontal is y = 1/2. I assume you wanted (x4)/(2x+1)
4. vertical at x=2 means C or D
horizontal at y=1 keeps C or D
intercept at (3,0) means D
increasing keeps D
so, D.
5. D = x not 2/3 means A or B
yintercept at (0,1/2) means B.
So, B.
