(-1,3) is the point in common. The graphs are translations of the absolute value graph ($y=abs(x)$) but in different directions. A graph would be more useful than a table.

Work Step by Step

Please see the graph. The place where the two graphs intersect is (-1,3). Blue line: $y=\operatorname{abs}\left(x+4\right)$ Red line: $y=\operatorname{abs}\left(x-2\right)$
