The graph is in the shape of a V.

Explanation:

#y=1+abs(x-1)#

Determine points on the graph by substituting positive and negative values for #x# and determining the corresponding #y# value.

#x=-3,# #y=5#
#x=-2,# #y=4#
#x=-1,# #y=3#
#x=0,# #y=2#
#x=1,# #y=1#
#x=2,# #y=2#
#x=3,# #y=3#
#x=4,# #y=4#
#x=5,# #y=5#

graph{y=1+abs(x-1) [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
