Exponential and Logaithmic Equations

1. Evaluate the exponential equation for three positive values of x, three negative values of x, and at x=0. Show your work. Use the resulting ordered pairs to plot the graph. State the equation of the line asymptotic to the graph (if any).

y = 3x - 4

2. Evaluate the logarithmic equation for three values of x that are greater than 1, three values of x that are between 0 and 1, and at x=1. Show your work. Use the resulting ordered pairs to plot the graph. State the equation of the line asymptotic to the graph (if any). Show your work

y = log3.5 x
