# How do you graph y = absx + 2?

Jun 30, 2015

Make a table of $x$ and $y$ values, making the values for $x$ both positive and negative. Then plot the points and draw the graph through the points.

#### Explanation:

$y = \left\mid x \right\mid + 2$

Table of $x$ and $y$ values
x=3; $y = 5$

x=2; $y = 4$

x=1; $y = 3$

x=0; $y = 2$

x=-1; $y = 3$

x=-2; $y = 4$

x=-3; $y = 5$

graph{y=absx+2 [-12.84, 12.81, -2.66, 10.17]}
