Sub in values for

#### 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

You should get this:

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