# How do you make a table to graph f(x)=(1/3)^(x-3)?

Mar 30, 2017

You make a table with $x$ values which you want to fill in the formula. Then plug them in and get the $y$ value.

#### Explanation:

First, define some $x$ values, like $0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , 4$ etc whatever is said in your book. Then plug these values into the formula, so it becomes

$f \left(0\right) = {\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}^{0 - 3}$

$f \left(1\right) = {\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}^{1 - 3}$

and so on. These values you place at the defined $x$ values and you got your table!

The graph should look like this

graph{(1/3)^(x-3) [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
