**Absolute Value Function**

Has the form An absolute value functions has graph that forms a V

3
**To 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.

**Characteristics 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.
