The equation y = $\frac{1}{4}\times(2)^{x}$ is an exponential function. This is an exponential growth because the a value is greater than 1. To graph, you start by plotting the y-intercept which is (0,$\frac{1}{4}$) because f(0) = $\frac{1}{4}\times(2)^{0}$ equals $\frac{1}{4}\times$1 which then equals $\frac{1}{4}$. Then you make a table of values for the equation and plot them.
