g(x) = abs(f(x))

[abs = absolute value]

How exactly do I explain this transformation? I don't think "y-values turn positive, matching x-values of f" works very well.

An example of another transformation:

g(x) = 3f(x)

~Vertical dilation by a factor of 3.

So how do I describe the absolute value transformation?

thanks!
