Please show me how we plot this graph?

\(Y=5.5^x+1\)

thank you kindly...

Hi Jurimagic,

It is an exponential graph.

5.5 to the power of anything must be bigger than 0

and so (5.5 ^x)+1 must be bigger than 1

As x get big in the positive direction y gets VERY big.

When x=0 y=2 (edited)

As x tends to negative infinity, y gets closer to 1 (but it will always be bigger than 1)

so

y=1 is an asymptote.

Here is your graph
