 Question 143189: Tutors I need your help!! I need to graph this function f(x) =5^xAnswer by jim_thompson5910(28504)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given expression In order to plot an exponential function, we need to plot some points We can start at any x value, so lets start at x=-1 Plug in Raise 5 to the negative first power to get or So when , . So our first point is (-1,0.2) ----Now lets find another point---- Plug in Raise 5 to the zeroth power to get 1 So when , . So our second point is (0,1) ----Now lets find another point---- Plug in Raise 5 to the first power to get 5 So when , . So our third point is (1,5) ----Now lets find another point---- Plug in Raise 5 to the second power to get 25 So when , . So our fourth point is (2,25) =============================================================================== Now lets make a table of the values we have calculated ``` xy -10.2 01 15 225 ```Now plot the points Connect the points to form the graph Graph of through the points solved for earlier
