Find an equation for a line that is tangent to the graph of y=e^{x}and goes through the origin.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

y'=e^{x}

That's about all I can think of. I don't know how to make the tangent line go through the origin. Can someone lead me in the right direction?
