# How do you graph f(x) = log(0.2) (x + 6)?

May 29, 2016

This is a straight line through $\left(- 6 , 0\right) \mathmr{and} \left(0 , - 4.2\right)$.

#### Explanation:

$\log .2 = - 0.7$, nearly..

So, the equation becomes $f \left(x\right) = y = - 0.7 x - 4.2$.

The slope of this line is $- 0.7$, nearly, and the y-intercept is #-4.2, nearly.

The x-intercept = -6.
