Hi, I'm trying to do a project in Algebra 1 and it's on Desmos. I want to make an exponential function that has its curve not directly on the y-axis. What would the equation look like?

Start with a basic equation y = a*b^x or y = a*e^(bx), and shift it up as needed to make the appropriate asymptote. You know how to do a vertical translation, right?

You may also want to think in terms of a horizontal shift, though that's equivalent to changing the coefficient a.
