# How do you graph y=tanx+5?

Jun 21, 2018

As below.

#### Explanation:

Standard form of a tangent function is $y = A \tan \left(B x - C\right) + D$

$\text{Given : } y = \tan x + 5$

$A = 1 , B = 1 , C = 0 , D = 5$

$\text{Amplitude " = |A| = "NONE for tangent function }$

$\text{Period } = \frac{\pi}{|} B | = \frac{\pi}{1} = \pi$

$\text{Phase Shift } = - \frac{C}{B} = 0$

$\text{Vertical Shift } = D = 5$
