# Which x values do you choose to create a (x, y) table for y=|x+5| ?

Jul 5, 2018

See below:

#### Explanation:

We can pick any values to create a table. For instance, we could construct a table like the following:

$x | y$

$1 | | 1 + 5 | = 6$

$3 | | 3 + 5 | = 8$

$5 | | 5 + 5 | = 10$

$6 | | 6 + 5 | = 11$

$7 | | 7 + 5 | = 12$

Notice, I just picked arbitrary values for $x$. We could have picked a million, trillion, any real number we want.

Hope this helps!
