2Absolute Value Function Has the formAn absolute value functions has graph that forms a V
3To graph absolute value functions Find the vertex.(Set the value inside the abs signs equal to zero)Make a table of values (an x/y chart).Choose enough x-values to create both legs of the V.Plot the points and connect them.
8Characteristics of Absolute Value Functions If the function is ______________, the V opens upward. If the function is ___________, the V opens downward.If there is a number added or subtracted inside the absolute value bars, the V is shifted ________________.If there is a number added or subtracted outside the absolute value bars, the V is shifted ________________.If the function is multiplied by a coefficient, the V gets narrower or wider.
