Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It will be 2 since the lowest value 3x+6 reaches is zero, since absolute values are never negative. And the vertex of such an absolute value function occurs on the axis of symmetry, which is where the absolute value part is zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=3x+62, for x <2 and y =3x62 for x>2 use this to draw the graph and get the vertex

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, the answer depends on the xco ordiante you have @jeyde205 when u have an x value, subsitute in the above eqns i have deduced and you can get the y values...
