# How do you find f(-6) given f(x)=absx-5?

Aug 2, 2018

$f \left(- 6\right) = 1$

#### Explanation:

$\text{substitute "x=-6" into } f \left(x\right)$

$f \left(\textcolor{red}{- 6}\right) = | \textcolor{red}{- 6} | - 5 = 6 - 5 = 1$

$f \left(- 6\right) = 1$

#### Explanation:

$f \left(- 6\right)$ means that $x = - 6$. With this piece of information, we can plug this into our function to get

$f \left(- 6\right) = | - 6 | - 5 = 6 - 5 = 1$

Hope this helps!
