## Esmy 3 years ago Graph the exponential function and state the domain and range. y = 5(x - 3)

this looks linear to me is the x-3 a power?

4. Esmy

5. Esmy

I don't think so hmm... :/

6. amorfide

this is a straight line graph if it is how you wrote it

7. Esmy

Which pic do you think 1 2 3 or 4

8. Esmy

9. amorfide

nope one second

10. Esmy

oh sorry I'm a lil blind lol

11. amorfide

12. amorfide

yeah go with pic 4

13. akash_809

you meant y=e^(5x-3) right

14. amorfide

omg i hope not

15. Esmy

No lol y = 5(x-3)

16. Esmy

thats how the question is asked... with no e in it

17. akash_809

no i jyst want to know she has written equation y=5x-3 and thats linear and she is posting exponential answers..just want to be sure of where we are going

18. amorfide

i treated it as 5^(x-3) the only exponential i can find

19. Esmy

I'm going with pic four :/

20. amorfide

anyways the domain is all x values you can put it, im pretty sure you can put any x value into this so domain is all real numbers range is all the y values you gain from this, which is y>0

21. akash_809

check for point (3,1)...when x=3 y=1...whichever garph satifies it should be the solution

22. Esmy

Domain: (-8, 8) , Range: (0, 8) that for pic four I didn't put that with the pic, but thats the domain.

23. amorfide

oops i feel dumb, i did 1/5 when i subbed in 3 for x

24. Esmy

hmmm do you still think its pic four lol

25. akash_809

he he...but i thing substituting 3,1 is the best bet bet here...finding domain and range will make it tedious

26. Esmy

ahh which one guys :(
