Question

p open parentheses x close parentheses equals 3 to the power of x end exponent is translated 5 units above.
Identify the asymptote of the translated exponential function.

  1. y = - 3    
  2. y = 6    
  3. x = - 3    
  4. y = 5    

Hint:

The y - intercept shifts up 5 units to (0, 6)

The correct answer is: y = 5


    The y - intercept of the parent function p open parentheses x close parentheses equals 3 to the power of x end exponent is (0, 1).
    Here, the parent function is translated vertically.
    The equation of translated exponential function is 3 to the power of x end exponent plus 5.
    The y - intercept shifts up 5 units to (0, 6). And the asymptote is y = 5.
