To determine

## To sketch: The graphs of the function y=2x,y=ex,y=5x and y=20x on the same axes and interpret how these graphs are related.

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

The rough graphs of the functions y=2x,y=ex,y=5x and y=20x are drawn and shown below in Figure 1.

From Figure 1, it is observed that the graphs of the functions are increasing and passing through the common point (0, 1). Also, notice that the given functions are exponential functions.

Thus, it can be concluded that the graphs are increasing exponential functions whose base is greater than 1.
