Answer:

Sub in values for #x# and solve for #y#.

Explanation:

We are first, going to list the transformations of the function before graphing.

  • Vertical compression by a factor of #1/2#.
  • Reflection along the #x#-axis.
  • Horizontal translation #6# units to the left.

The easiest method to graph the function would be to sub in values for #x# and solve for #y#. Then plot the point you subbed in and solved for.

You should get this:

graph{y=-1/2|x+6| [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
