1. The slope of line cannot be that of curve or greater.

slope line=-3

slope curve>slope line

-3<-3/x^2
x^2>1
x>1
check x=10 slope line=-3
slope curve=-3/100=-.03
check x=1/2 slope curve=-12
do the others the same way

3. the slope of xy=3 is y' = -3/x^2
So, the slope is -3 at x=1

The tangent to the curve at x=1 is

y-3 = -3(x-1)
y = -3x+6
y = 6-3x

so, for y = c-3x, if c < 6, the line falls below the curve. Similarly, for x<0, the line lies above the other branch of the curve if c > -6.

So, -6 < c < 6

Follow this logic for the other parts
