# Math Help - exponent function transformations

1. ## exponent function transformations

Hi,

I am not sure what the transformations are in the following

Started with y=5^x

final transformation is

y=2-3(5^(x+4))

2. There are vertical and horizontal translations and there is also a dilation, which is which?

3. lol oh goodness. im not sure. i am confused now too! thanks for ur help!

4. Consider $y = A\times B^{x-C}+D$

A is the dilation, C is the horizontal shift and D is the vertical shift, can you apply this to your equation?

5. so i was given three equations and the points the graph of the first equation hit.

y=5^x then

y= -3(5^x) then

y=2-3(5^(x+4))

I am not sure if i minus 3-2 so then my graph is just flipped in the x axis, instead of being stretched vertically by factor of 3 and then flipped (am i making sense?)
