# Exponential Graph

We at ask-math believe that educational material should be free for everyone. Please use the content of this website for in-depth understanding of the concepts. Additionally, we have created and posted videos on our youtube.

We also offer One to One / Group Tutoring sessions / Homework help for Mathematics from Grade 4th to 12th for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus for US, UK, Europe, South east Asia and UAE students.

Affiliations with Schools & Educational institutions are also welcome.

We will be happy to post videos as per your requirements also. Do write to us.

The exponential graph function with base b is defined by
f(x) = bx ; where b > 0 , b≠ 1, and x is any real number.

Characteristics of Exponential-Graph:
1) graph crosses the y-axis at (0,1)
2) when b > 1, the graph increases
3) when 0 < b < 1, the graph decreases
4) the domain is all real numbers
5) the range is all positive real numbers (never zero)
6) graph passes the vertical line test ---> it is a function
7) graph passes the horizontal line test ----> its inverse is also a function.
8) graph is asymptotic to the x-axis -----> gets very, very close to the x-axis but does not touch it or cross it.

Example :
1) y = bx , b>1 , the graph will be increasing from right to left in upward direction i.e. from negative x-axis to positive y-axis.
Example : 2) y = - bx, b<1, the graph will be decreasing right to left in downward direction i.e. from negative x-axis to negative y-axis.
Example : 3) y = b-x when the exponent is negative. The graph will be from left to right in upward direction i.e. from positive x-axis to positive y-axis.
Example : 4) y = bx + c ,
first draw a graph of y = bx as there is + c the graph will be shifted to ‘c’ units up from the graph of y = bx
Example : 5) y = bx - c , the graph shifted ‘c’ units down from the graph of y = bx
Example : Natural exponential-graph
The function is defined by f(x) = ex is called the Natural Exponential Function. ( e is an irrational number ) The inverse of the exponential function is the Logarithmic function.
