# How do you graph y= 5( 2) ^x?

Nov 29, 2016

#### Answer:

$y$ is ${2}^{x}$ scaled by 5

#### Explanation:

$y = 5 \cdot {2}^{x}$

The graph of $y$ is ${2}^{x}$ scaled by 5

$y > 0 \forall x \in \mathbb{R}$

$y \to 0$ as $x \to - \infty$

$y = 5$ at $x = 0$

The graph of $y$ is shown below:

graph{5*2^x [-12.89, 4.89, -0.96, 7.93]}
