MULTIPLE CHOICE? PLEASE HELP!:) Describe how the graphs of y = |x| and y = |x + 3| are related. a.The two graphs are the same. b.The graphs have the same shape. The y-intercept of y=|x| is 0, and the x-intercept of the second graph is 3. c.The graphs have the same shape. The y-intercept of y=|x| is 0, and the y-intercept of the second graph is 3. d.The graphs have the same shape. The y-intercept of |x| is 0, and the x-intercept of the second graph is –3.

    C. If you plug the values into the equations, you can easily see that only C works. Remember that the y intercept is (0, y). For the equation y = |x + 3|, if x is 0, then y is 3, so the answer must be c.

    it is D because if \(x=-3\) then \(|x+3|=|-3+3|=0\)

    Shoot, I was trying to make it easier to understand, but I guess the way I explained it didn't work. Anyways, aren't both B and C true then? Because the y intercept is 3 and the x is negative 3.
