Okay, I have a graph of the f(x). It is a parabola that opens up. What does the graph of f(x) look like (the absolute value). Is it the same, or flipped or translated? Can someone describe what it looks like to me please :)

plug in numbers and see for yourself!
y=x^2
y=(x)^2
are they or they not identical?

The absolute value of x is always positive; so is the square. So the shape will remain invariant under this transformation, and so will be its position.
