Shift exponential decay function e^(-t) along the X axis.

y = e^(-x)

Is there any way I can cause this function to slide along the x-axis?

Thank you.

$y=e^{-x+c}$, where $c$ can be any constant you want.

Ok. That seems to be a google graphing issue. I used a graphing calculator and everything came out right. Strange.

Thank you.
