See the explanation below

#### Explanation:

Start by graphing

The function is defined for

When

and

When

graph{|x| [-7.15, 8.654, -0.39, 7.51]}

Next graph,

The graph of

graph{|x-1| [-7.15, 8.654, -0.39, 7.51]}

And finally, graph

The graph

graph{|x-1|+4 [-7.15, 8.654, -0.39, 7.51]}

Your graph should look like:

#### Explanation:

Generate a few sample points,

one for which

and a couple for each of

The sample points I used were

Plot these points on the Cartesian plane

and draw straight lines extending from the vertex point (where
