The horizontal asymptote of y = (e^x) - 1 is y =?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Note that if the exponential function is in the form `f(x)= a ^x + c` , the horizontal asymptote is  `y = c` .

Hence, the horizontal asymptote of the function `y = e^x - 1` is `y=-1` .
