Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - Chapter Review - 5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions: 44

Answer

$y=|x|+2$

Work Step by Step

The graph pictured shows an absolute value function translated $2$ units up. The graph of $y=|x|+k$, where $k$ is a positive number, translates the graph $y=|x|$ up $k$ units. When we substitute $2$ for $k$, the equation represents $y=|x|$, translated $2$ units up. This gives us the equation $y=|x|+2$
