Algebra 1

Describe how the graphs of y = absolute value of x,and y = absolute value of X -15 are related.

1- Them graphs have the same shape. The y intercept of y = absolute x is 0, and them x intercept of the 2nd graph is -15.
2-m The graphs have the same y intercept. The second graph is steeper than y = absolute X.
3-The graphs are the same.
4-The graphs have the same shape. The y- intercept of y =absolute X is 0, and the y intercept of the second graph is-15.

  1. If you mean |x|-15

    then as usual, the graph is shifted down 15 units.

    It's a lot easier to figure out what you mean if you just use proper notation.

    If you meant |x-15| then none of the choices is correct.
