# Algebra 1 : How to graph an exponential function

## Example Questions

### Example Question #2 : Solving Exponential Functions

What is the horizontal asymptote of the graph of the equation  ?

Explanation:

The asymptote of this equation can be found by observing that  regardless of . We are thus solving for the value of as approaches zero.

So the value that  cannot exceed is , and the line  is the asymptote.

### Example Question #32 : Graphing

What is/are the asymptote(s) of the graph of the function

?

Explanation:

An exponential equation of the form  has only one asymptote - a horizontal one at . In the given function, , so its one and only asymptote is .
