See explanation

#### Explanation:

Let's start by looking at its parent function:

graph{|x| [-9.97, 10.03, -0.6, 9.4]}

Now looking at

...we can see the we must shift the entire graph **left**

To do that, we take each point on the graph and subtract

For example:

The point

Once we do that we'll get the following graph...

graph{|x+6| [-14.34, 5.66, -0.88, 9.12]}

...which is the graph of
