We've dealt along with this function many times already. Now it's time to graph it. First, let's remember ourselves of the definition of the absolute value function.
It is a piecewise function & we've illustrated how to graph these already. All that we have to do is obtain some points in both ranges & plot them.
Here are some function evaluations.
x
f(x)
0
1
-1
2
-2
Following is graph of this function.
Hence, it is a "V" shaped graph.
