# How do you graph Y= [abs (x+1)] -1?

Jul 29, 2017

See below

#### Explanation:

$Y = \left\mid x + 1 \right\mid - 1$

$Y$ has the standard graph $y = \left\mid x \right\mid$ transformed negative ("left") 1 unit on the $x -$axis and negative ("down") 1 unit on the $y -$axis.

The graph of $Y$ is shown below.

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