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

How come the graph of y = 2^x has a negative x-axis as an asympote. And what is the asympote of this graph?

2. Relevant equations

An asympote is a line that approaches the graph but does not intersect as x increases or decreases.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know the graph of y = 1/2^x has an asympote which is y = 0 because its closer to the y=0. But for y= 2^x, i only see the numbers increasing, would the asympote be y = - 2
