## Algebra and Trigonometry 10th Edition

$f(x)=-|x|-12$
Since the shape of the graph is a $f(x) = |x|$ we will start with that function: $f(x)=|x|$ The transformation is 12 units up. Up and down transformations are added to the right side. Up is positive and down is negative. $f(x)=|x|+12$ The reflection is across the x-axis. X-axis reflections mean multiplying the right side by -1 $f(x)=-|x|-12$
