7.4: Exponential Functions Exponential function is a function in the form  f(x) =   b x   where  b  is a positive real number and  b    1 and  is  any real number. The number  e  is the number that  1 1 + F H G I K J n n  approaches as n →∞ .     Approximate to three decimal places: 1. 3 5 2. 2 e Graph the following exponential functions; state the domain, range, and any horizontal asymptote: 3. y = 2 x 4. y = 1 2 F H G I K J x = 2 -x 5. y = e x y = 2 x+2 ; y = 2 -x-2 ; y = -e x ; y = 2 x – 2 y = 2 -x + 2 y = 2 - e x 6.
