# Question #9cf14

##### 1 Answer

Graph the function using a table of values, making sure to include the vertex.

#### Explanation:

The general form of an absolute value equation is

Where:

If

To graph using transformations, we look at the parent function (in this case

In the example provided above,

The table of values for the parent function looks like this:

X | Y

-2 | 2

-1 | 1

0 | 0

1 | 1

2 | 2

The transformed table of values would look like this:

X + h | aY + k

-2-2=-4 | -1(2)+0=-2

-1-2=-3 | -1(1)+0=-1

0-2=-2 | -1(0)+0=0

1-2=-1 | -1(1)+0=-1

2-2=0 | -1(2)+0=-2

(Sorry about the table format...)
