f(x) = a * b^{c(x-h) }+ k

What does it mean that c stretches hoizontally by a factor of |1/c|?

Please show by example. Thanks

I have attached graphs of 4 functions with varying values of c. Hope it will clarify the concept of horizontal stretchAttachment 26518

If I have to draw a graph where c is 2^2x compared to 2^x, what is happening to f(x)?
