Answer:

#y# has the standard graph of #absx# shifted by 9 units positive ("Up") on the #y-#axis.

Explanation:

#y=absx+9#

Consider the standard graph of #absx# below.

graph{absx [-41.1, 41.07, -20.54, 20.55]}

Then, #y# has this standard graph shifted by 9 units positive ("Up") on the #y-#axis, as below.

graph{absx+9 [-41.1, 41.07, -20.54, 20.55]}
