To find: Graph the given function
See the graph.
Graphs of required functions are given below:
Since e<8, graph of 8x increases more rapidly than graph of ex. Also, as 18=8-1<1e(=e-1, therefore graph of 8-x decreases more rapidly than graph of e-x.
Conclusion: See graph.
1) You can observe from the graph that, as the base increases, graph of the function increases more rapidly (for x>0).
2) Graphs of all the functions pass through the same point (0,1) because base0=1 for base≠0.
3) The graph for base-x is just the reflection of the graph for basex about the line y=x.
