Plot the function

[math] y = e^{ax}[/math]

where the parameter [math]a[/math] is determined by the Point [math]A=(x_A, y_A)[/math].

That means,

[math] a = log(y_A) / x_A [/math]


The JavaScript code

var board = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('box1', {boundingbox: [-5, 20, 5, -1], axis:true});

var A = board.create('point', [1, Math.exp(1)]);
var graph = board.create('functiongraph', [
         function(x) {
            var a = Math.log(A.Y()) / A.X();
            return Math.exp(a * x);
         }]);
           
var txt = board.create('text', [-3, 10, function () {
           return "a = " + (Math.log(A.Y()) / A.X()).toFixed(2);
          }], {fontSize: 16});
