    That's weird, I'm certain I've seen this question before. Must be another guy with the same question. Anyway, do you know what parent function of absolute value looks like?

    Notice that in your attachment, it opens downward, not upward. Do you know why?

    No, It's not a. Since function opens downward, there must be a minus sign outside the absolute value. You get it?

    That's correct. 8 shifts the function to the left and -4 shifts it to down. Do you understand?
