Graphing Absolute Value Functions

Graphing Absolute Value Functions 1.9 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Graphing Absolute Value Functions

We are asked to draw the graph of To do so, we will use a table of values to find points on the graph. Recall that the absolute value removes the negative sign. In this case, however, we have a negative sign preceding the absolute value. This will take each positive value created by the absolute value and then make it negative, regardless of its original sign.

Simplify absolute value

Now, we will plot and connect the obtained points. Doing that we keep in mind that the graph of an absolute value function has a V shape.
