math. can someone do this for me please....

* Consider the functions f(x)=1/x +4 and g(x)=2/x. Graph f and g on the same grid.

a)Determine the points of intersection of the two functions.

b)Show where f(x)<g(x).

c)Solve the equation 1/x +4=2/x to check your answer to part a).

d)Solve the inequality 1/x +4<2/x to check your answer to part b).
