**Role of a and b in y = ab ^{x}**

The purpose of this applet is to illustrate how the values of
a and b affect the exponential function * y = ab^{x}*. Use it as follows:

- Use the scroll bar to change the values of a(between -10 and 10). The exponential function should change as a changes. The value of a to the left of the scroll bar should also be updated.
- Use the scroll bar to change the values of b(between 0.1 and 10). The exponential
function should change as b changes. The value of b to the left of the scroll
bar should also be updated.
**Note that for exponential functions,***b*is not allowed to be 1. The applet will not let the user to set*b*to 1.
