Create a **data table** to graph the **exponential function : **

#### Explanation:

Create a **data table**:

Closely examine the values for

No value of

So, the graph gets closer and closer to the **x-axis** but never touches the **x-axis.**

Hence, **horizontal asymptote**.

Using the data table, graph the function

For easy comprehension, graph the exponential function **parent function**.

Compare both the graphs to understand the behavior of the given exponential function

The graph of **reflected about the x-axis ** when the sign of **negative**.
