For functions f(x) = 1-x and g(x) = 1/x, write in the form (ax+b)/(cx +d)

Its a 3 part question, but I guess I will wait for the first answer and then ask the next two parts

The function f(x) =1 - x and g(x) = 1/x

The two functions are in the form that you require:

f(x) = 1 - x = (-1*x + 1)/(0*x + 1) where a = -1, b = 0, c = 0 and d = 1

g(x) = 1/x = (0*x + 1)/(1*x + 0), where a = 0, b = 1, c = 1 and d = 0

Both the functions given are in the form (ax + b)/(cx + d)
