# What is the graph of the absolute value function?

May 6, 2018

$f \left(x\right) = | x |$ - see graph below

#### Explanation:

Given: the absolute value function

$f \left(x\right) = | x |$

The absolute value function has a vertex at $\left(0 , 0\right)$.

The left side of the curve has a slope of $m = - 1$ and the right side of the curve has a slope of $m = 1$
