Consider the provided equation, $y=\left| x \right|-2$ Now, choose some values for $x$ and compute the value for $y=\left| x \right|-2$, in order to form the ordered pairs to plot on the graph. So, put $x=-3$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=3-2 \\ & =1 \end{align} Put $x=-2$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=2-2 \\ & =0 \end{align} Put $x=-1$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=1-2 \\ & =-1 \end{align} Now, put $x=0$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=0-2 \\ & =-2 \end{align} Now, put $x=1$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=1-2 \\ & =-1 \end{align} Put $x=2$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=2-2 \\ & =0 \end{align} Put $x=3$ in the provided equation $y=\left| x \right|-2$, \begin{align} & y=3-2 \\ & =1 \end{align}
