Graphing absolute value linear equations, the just of it is that nothing can be below the xaxis instead it is reflected off of the x axis to create a v graph.

example:

original y = -x + 2 is red

absolute y = l-x + 2l is blue

Graphing absolute value quadratics. When graphing an absolute value quadraticâ€™s you basically reflect whatever is below the x axis.

example

Original Y = -x^2+5 is red

Absolute Y = l-x^2+5l is blue

If the whole parabola is below the x axis this is what it looks like.

Original Y = -x^2-3 is green

absolute Y = l-x^2-3lis blue
