Value of y = 3,2,1,0,1,2,3.

Work Step by Step

x can take values from -4 to +2. So, x can have values -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2. Therefore, For $x=-4, y=|(-4)+1|=|-3|=3,$ For $x=-3, y=|(-3)+1|=|-2|=2,$ For $x=-2, y=|(-2)+1|=|-1|=1,$ For $x=-1, y=|(-1)+1|=|\,0\,|=0,$ For $x=0, y=|(0)+1|=|1|=1,$ For $x=\,\,1, y=|(1)+1|=|2|=2,$ For $x=\,\,2, y=|(2)+1|=|3|=3,$
