(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Im not sure what each of the variables do in

y=ca^{x-p}+q

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

my understanding is that

-q is for vertical shifts/transformations

-p is for horizontal shifts/transformations

-and c is for vertical stretching

not sure what a is for

please help?

thanks!
