Reflect the graph of

#### Explanation:

First think about how you can graph

Note that

#(0, 1)#

#(1, e) ~~ (1, 2.718)#

#(2, e^2) ~~ (2, 7.389)#

#(3, e^3) ~~ (3, 20.0855)#

...

#(-1, e^(-1)) ~~ (-1, 0.3679)#

#(-2, e^(-2)) ~~ (-2, 0.1353)#

#(-3, e^(-3)) ~~ (-3, 0.0498)#

...

So it looks like this:

graph{e^x [-11.04, 8.96, -1.28, 8.72]}

To get the graph of its inverse

graph{ln x [-5.04, 14.96, -6.96, 3.04]}
