# How do you graph #y= absx- 4#?

##### 2 Answers

Start by graphing (or thinking of the graph of)

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

Now, for

So for every

graph{abs (x) -4[-10, 10, -5, 5]}

**step1:**

Use the definition that

and that

This means, given that,

*two* lines below,

**Note** that *only* when

*only* when
