    Unhappy graphing exponential functions

    f(x) = a * bc(x-h) + k
    What does it mean that c stretches hoizontally by a factor of |1/c|?
    Please show by example. Thanks

    Re: graphing exponential functions

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