#### Answer:

See below

#### Explanation:

Consider

This is of general shape

So it is symmetrical about the y-axis. This happens because no matter what value you use for

Consider what happens next. Take every value of y and add 4 to it.

The consequence of this is that the general shape graph of V is lifted upwards by 4 graph{y=abs(x)+4 [-6, 6, -3, 10]}
