{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} To solve the exponential equation by graphing, we first have to create two functions. Each side of the given equation will become a function. $1−5_{5−x}=-9⇒y=1−5_{5−x}y=-9 $ The solution to the equation is the $x-$value where the two graphs intersect.

From the diagram, we see that the graphs intersect at $x≈3.5.$ This is our best guess approximation. If we limit the diagram's $x$-axis around the point of intersection, we can get a better approximation.
