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.

Actually Melody, when x=0 y=2

As (5.5^0)=1

1+1=2

Hi Melody,

gosh I always tend to overthink things...it's really very simple....I should apologise for waisting your time on something like this......sorry..
