To graph the given , we will make a table of values. We can substitute some
values into the rule and solve for the corresponding
values. Recall that the absolute value of a number is always positive. Let's first calculate the
We have found that
Therefore, the point
lies on the graph. We can find other points on the graph in the same way.
To draw the graph, we will plot and connect these points. Recall that the graph of an absolute value function has a
