    Sorry I know that I sound stupid right now. lol The vertex is a graph I had to draw. The graph was y = -2 Ix - 1I + 4

    no you don't sound that way... math is so broad that vertex could mean a lot of things... i'm just trying to clarify the question... and good thing i did because i thought the question was referring to a parabola... :)

    so the graph is an absolute value function... y = -2|x-1| + 4

    because of the -2, the vertex will be HIGHEST point in the graph....

    HINT: the highest value for y is 4...

    So the range would be all real numbers between -2 and 4?

    no... the range is: all real numbers less than or equal to 4
