# How do you evaluate the function f(x) = |x|+6 for f(-2)?

Jun 5, 2018

$8$

#### Explanation:

Since we are being asked to evaluate $f \left(- 2\right)$, everywhere we see an $x$, we replace it with a $- 2$. We now have

$| - 2 | + 6$

NOTE: Absolute Value makes any number positive, so we essentially have

$2 + 6$

which is obviously

$8$

Hope this helps!
