# How do you graph the exponential function f(x)=(1/7)^x?

Compute for rectangular coordinates then connect the points to graph $f \left(x\right) = {\left(\frac{1}{7}\right)}^{x}$

#### Explanation:

from the given equation: $f \left(x\right) = y = {\left(\frac{1}{7}\right)}^{x}$

Compute $x$ and $y$ values:

$x , y$ values
-3 , 343
-2, 49
-1, 7
0, 1
1, 0.142857
2 , 0.020408
3, 0.002915

Plot the points using graphing paper and use appropriate scale:

graph{(y-(1/7)^x)=0[-10,10,-5,10]}
