Write an equation for for each translation of y=|x|
1. left 2 units

y = |x| consists of two 45 degree curves joined at the origin:
y = x for x>0, and y = -x for x < 0.

To move the curves to the left 2 units, you want the sign of the term inside the absolute value sign to change when x = -2 instead of x = 0.

Think about how you might do this.
