5-13.

Graph the inequalities $y \geq | x - 2 |$ and $y \leq 4 - | x |$. What is the area of the enclosed region?

Use graph paper for this problem.
What is the shape of an absolute value graph?
How is each graph being transformed?

The enclosed region is a rectangle. If you used graph paper, you can determine the area by counting square units, or you can calculate the length and width and then multiply.
