write the following absolute value functions as piecewise functions.
i really not get how to do this
f(x) = x
i think im supposed to state as positive and negative but i not even know what that x means. i only guessing and saying that for positive it be a positive x and for negative it be a negative x.
this one is harder
g(x) = x+1
is this part of formula y = axp+1 so that mean that x+1 is negative horizontal translation and we need to make it positive going x1
and for negative it be x+1

N = N if N >=0
N = N if N < 0
f(x) = x =
x if x >= 0
x if x < 0
g(x) = x+1 =
x+1 if x+1 >= 0 (that is, if x >= 1)
(x+1) if x+1 < 0
