# Math Help - exponential function

1. ## exponential function

how do i graph these?

$y=2^{(3(x-5))}$

and the base function

$y=2^x$

2. Anything of the form $y = a^x$ where $a$ is positive passes through (0,1) and (1,a), has no stationary points and has an asymptote with $y\to 0$ as $x \to -\infty$.

This is the base function translated 5 right and with a dilation of 1/3 parallel to the x axis.
