# How do you graph #f(x) = 6^x#?

Use semi-log graph paper. Plots f = 10^n, n=0, 1, 2, 3, ... become graduations 0, 1, 2 3 ...in the logarithmic scale. The graph for the given function will be a straight, line through the origin.

#### Explanation:

Use F = log f = x log 6 instead and plot x against F, on a semi-log

graph paper.

It will be a straight line F = m x, m=- log 6, through the origin.

The origin represents #F = log f = 0, for f = 10^0=1.

The graduations 1, 2, 3 .. on the log scale represent #f = 10^1, 10^2,

10^3, ..#
