Set the absolute value function equal to 0:

This tells us that the minimum point occurs at

The right side graph has a slope of 1, therefore, we shall move 2 to the right of the minimum and plot the point

The left side graph has a slope of -1, therefore, we shall move 2 to the left of the minimum and plot the point
