First, the graph of any absolute value equation looks like a V-shape.

In #|x + 2|,# in the graph you go left 2 (x-axis)
The -2 outside of the absolute value means you go down 2 (y-axis)

The slope here is just 1 because x literally means 1x.

Because they want the values of y less than the expression, color everything less than that expression.

The graph looks like this:
