see explanation

#### Explanation:

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

To find the points on a graph, plug in the $x$ values to get the matching $y$ values. For example:

$y = | \left(1\right) + 2 | - 3$
$y = | 3 | - 3$
$y = 0$
point: $\left(1 , 0\right)$

$y = | \left(- 4\right) + 2 | - 3$
$y = | - 2 | - 3$
$y = - 1$
point: $\left(- 4 , - 1\right)$
