@julliemyers, do you have an idea of what the answer might be?

yes im thinkn that the value of K will raise the entire graph of the function by k units.

Im not sure, i know that the value of K will either have an increase in the graph or a decrease, so im going with increase @Falkqwer

Yes, that is correct. The graph will increase depending on the value of k, assuming that k is positive.

Although, it's more accurate to indicate direction of the graph (up, down, left, right).

^So increse.? @Hero it doesnt give nor ask for the value of K but im assumong by the equation they give y = ab(x – h) + k that k is positve.

Well, yes, it is necessary to mention the possibilities when it comes to variables in a graph because the direction on the graph will depend on the value of k. If k is positive, the graph shifts upward, if the value of k is negative, it shifts downward. So you always have to account for that.
