to graft dysfunction. We're going to start by looking at the graph of the standard function Y equals the absolute value of X. So that's your basic V shaped graph with the Vertex at 00 Now what happens to it if we subtract two, that's going to shift the whole thing down, too. So the graph of that, we're going to have to take that Vertex and shifted down to a swell all the points shift down to and here's what we get.
