How do you graph #f(x)=5^x#?
Find the intercepts and asymptotes, plot a few points, and then sketch the graph.
Step 1. Find the domain and range.
Step 2. Find the
Step 3. Find the
There is no
Step 4. Find the horizontal asymptote.
The horizontal asymptote is at
Step 5. Calculate some extra points.
We have one point:
Step 6. Plot the axes and your three points.
Step 7. Complete the graph with a smooth curve through the three points.
And you have your graph.
