Sketch the graph of each of the following (labelling asymptotes), and state the range of each: $y=3^x+1$
is below graph. I have no idea, how can it get $(0,2)$ i know that the $+1$ is asymptotes, Isn't it $(0,2)$ suppose to be $(0,3) $accroding to the equation.

enter image description here

Appreciate your explaination! thanks

It’s right: $3^0+1=1+1=2$, so $y=2$ when $x=0$. – Brian M. Scott May 20 '12 at 9:34
i understand now! thx alot, can I delete my question. it seem very easy! – Sb Sangpi May 20 '12 at 9:36
You could delete it, or in a few hours $-$ I forget how long you have to wait $-$ you could answer it yourself and accept your own answer. This is perfectly acceptable; in fact, it’s encouraged. – Brian M. Scott May 20 '12 at 9:38

yes, the graph plotted above is correct because
$y=3^x+1$, $x=0$
$y=2$ when $x=0$
so, the graph plotted it correct!
