    \[\large\rm g(x)=4^{x+3}+2\]What do we have to do with this function? :o

    Graph it :( We have to pick 3 points but I chose 1 and got like 258

    |dw:1444279384850:dw|It's an exponential, so it looks something like this :U

    Yeah I mean it would look like that though. I tried -1 and got 18 which is still a big number :(

    Ya, you don't want really big numbers. So you would like to make the `exponent` as close to zero as possible. So you want this x+3 to be somewhat small. How bout x=-3?

    \(\large\rm (-3,?)\) what do you get for your y when plug in -3 for x?

    \(\large\rm (-3,3)\) mmm ok good that gives us one point :) How about choosing another value that is really close by, like umm... -2?

    If x=-1 is giving you a value that is too big, then you could try going the other direction I suppose, x=-4

    What if we do -4? Since -1 = 18 -___-

    What will be thr asymptote? :o

    The normal asymptote for an exponential function will be the x-axis, which is y=0. The +2 on the end of our function is a vertical shift up 2 units. So hmm.. what will that do? :)

    The +2 is shifting `everything` up by 2. So it shifts the asymptote up by 2. So instead of having an asymptote at y=0, you'll have an asymptote at y=2.
