    Graphing help

    I do not know how to graph using algorithms in this textbook. It is asking for the x-int, y-int, asymptotes and more....but i just want to know how to find out what it looks like...i tried a graphing calculator and it didn't show anything.

    c = te^-t + 5

    Obviously the independent variable is t and the dependent variable is c.

    I don't know which type of graphing calculator you use but if you have (for instance) a TI84 then you have to change the names of the variables:

    c = y

    t = x

    I've attached a screen shot of the input and of the graph.
