The equation y = $(\frac{1}{3})^{x}$ is an exponential function. This is an exponential decay because the a value is less than 1. To graph, you start by plotting the y-intercept which is (0,1) because f(0) = $(\frac{1}{3})^{0}$ equals 1. Then you make a table of values for the equation and plot them.
