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

##### 2 Answers

Here are some points we can plug in. It's best if we use whole numbers:

#### Explanation:

This is the graph:

graph{6^x [-10, 10, -2, 40]}

Make sure that the line nears the x-axis, but never actually touches it. The line will continue to sweep up as it reaches infinity, but the line will never be vertical since that would make the equation a non-function.

Choose values for

#### Explanation:

Put values for

Plot the points

e.g.

You don't have to use all of these points

To graph some of these points you would have to choose suitable horizontal and vertical axis scales, and round the decimals to 1decimal place.

Remember if you choose to plot the higher values of
