Which statement about the function y = -1/4x− 2 is true?
1)As the value of x increases, the value of y increases.
2)As the value of x decreases, the value of y stays the same.
3)As the value of x increases, the value of y decreases.
4)As the value of x decreases, the value of y decreases.
sorry to trouble yall

y = - 1 / ( 4 x ) - 2

y = - ( 1 / 4 ) ∙ x - 2

Compare your function with y = - 1 / x

The constant 1 / 4 multiplying and the constant 2 subtracting do not affect the shape of the graph.

For:

y = - 1 / x

The function increases on interval ( − ∞ , 0 ) ∪ ( 0 , ∞) , becouse for x = 0 the function is undefined.

This means the function is increased when values of x increased.

Also the function decreases when the values of x decrease.

Statements 1 and 4 are correct.
