What happens in a graph when you modify the value of $a$ in the following equation:
$ae^x$ where e is the natural number.
At first it seemed like it was translating the graph horizontally but when $a$ is negative it inverses the graph. I then thought it was dilating the graph however it didn't look like the curve between the horizontal and vertical asymptote was changing, it was just moving horizontally. So how would i describe this change?
