Rewrite as a piecewise function using two linear equations. Describe how the graph changes. .

Start by sketching a graph. If you do not know what looks like, graph , then...

How would the absolute value sign change this function?

Notice that is the boundary point of . So the piecewise function will have two pieces that meet at . The first piece looks like _______ and the second piece looks like ___________.

Use the eTool below to view the graphs of the function.
