Answer:

graph{y=2|x-1|-3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Explanation:

A standard absolute value graph looks like this:
graph{y=|x| [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
This graph was translated 1 unit right and 3 units down. (you know this because the equation includes #|x-1|# and #-3#)
From the 2 in front of the equation, you know the graph was dilated by a factor of 2, giving you your final answer.
