Identify the following features of the graph of g(x) = (3/2)^x+2
C) Increasing or decreasing
Once I graph this on my calculator, how can I find these?
sounds like you are using a graphing calculator, I don't have one of those.
But I can visualize the graph,
since the base is (3/2) , as x ---> large +
g(x) becomes very large, so the curve rises to the right
as x ---> large - , we get 1/"large" -----> 0
the curve approaches the x-axis to the left, and there is a horizontal asymptote at y = 0
when x = -2 , y = 1, so the y-intercept is 1
