Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay my first question is this: What is the graph of the absolute value equation? y = /x/ 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know what \(y=x\) looks like? that is the basic starting point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not really. I've been having a lot of trouble with graphing :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it looks like a V dw:1441118922280:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to the right of zero it is the line \(y=x\) to the left it is \(y=x\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay I thought so. Can the V's placement move up and down on the graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you subtract 9 outside, it moves it down 9 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats what I was about to draw.

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and output is 9 less than \(y=x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so when you have y = /x/ will it always look like a V?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol yeah it never changes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And then the number at the end of the equation is where you place it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if it was say \(y=x+2\) it would be up 2 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the graph of the absolute value equation? y = /x+4/

misty1212
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok this one is a bit different because FIRST you add 4 THEN take the absolute value

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that shifts the V 4 units to the LEFT`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't be confused by going to the left think of it this way the smallest the absolute value can be is zero, so if \(x=4\) then \(y=4+4=0=0\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And its positive right so wouldn't it be to the right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! Your reply came in late so I didn't see it! I got it!

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no for the reason i wrote above don't forget the order in which you do things here first add 4, then take the absolute value if \(x=4\) then \(y=4+4=8\) not 0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I understand. I didn't see what you said before I replied.

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is more general than just for the absolute value compared to \(y=f(x)\) the graph of \((y=f(x+4)\) would be shifted to the LEFT 4

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay! I got it :) So the graph would have the v shifted to the left 4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = /x+2/ 3 = /0/ 3

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it can't really ask "what is the absolute value" right? maybe graph it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it is going to look like \[y=ax+88\]
