Try and understand what the question is asking for... "Write an inequality for the graph"

Well I think on a graph with inequalities either all more or all less and equal too will be shaded

10. skullpatrol

Yes, that is a good start.

11. Brittanyy!

but that is all I know and I guess I`m getting confused by looking at my possible answers A. y £ |x – 5| – 5 B. y ³ |x – 5| + 5 C. y £ |x + 5| + 5 D. y £ |x – 5| + 5

There are rules you need to know for shifting the absolute value function: y =|x| around. They involve the constants a and b. So the general form looks like y = |x + a| + b.

13. Brittanyy!

well I think there is going to be a negative and positive in there so it is B or D

14. Brittanyy!

wait you have + a and + b does it always have to be +?
