Why does the chain has an equation

]]>

But I have been thinking about writing one in Flash, so that I can extend it.

]]>They are still a mystery to me, but I see the basic shape now.]]>

Example:

1. Enter "x^2+4", and press "PlotF" (bottom left). Then change 4 to 5 (or 3 etc) and press PlotF again to see what happens when "c" changes.

]]>However, I'm going to jump at this opportunity to actually help someone, thought I'd be the one absorbing all the help around here, not giving it out. .

1. vertical translation of +c

2. vertical stretch of scale factor b

3. horizontal compression of scale factor k, also referred to as horizontal stretch of scale factor 1/k.

4. if (x) = a ^ x and g(x) = a ^ -x, g(x) is a reflection of (x) in the y axis.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, don't want to be giving out dummy information!

]]>1. Try graphing 2^x + 0, 2^x + 1, and 2^x - 1

2. 1 * (2^x), 2*(2^x), 4*(2^x)

3. 2^(1*x), 2^(2*x), 2^(4*x)

4. 2^x and 2^-x

Just try different ones, and you should very quickly begin to see a pattern emerge.

]]>1. make a general statement about the effect of 'c' on the graph of f(x) = (a^x) + c

2. make a general statement about the effect of 'b' on the graph of f(x) = b * (a^x)

3. make a general statement about the effect of 'k' on the graph of f(x) = a^(k*x)

4.how does the graph of f(x) = a^-x compare to the graph of f(x) = a^x?

thank you!!
