I need help, and I can't find the answer. Can you explain how to do this please? I don't want the answer only, I need to know the answer, and how to find it. Thank you!!

9. What is the equation of the absolute value function? (1 point)

y = 6|x + 2| –2

y = 6|–x – 2| + 2

y = –6|x + 2| – 2

y = –6|x – 2| – 2

those are all equation using the absolute value function.

They are all v-shaped, opening up or down. To see what they look like, go to

wolframalpha.com

and type in the box

plot 6|x + 2| –2

or the other formulas, and see what the graphs look like. It's a good place to play around with variations on a theme.
