# Absolute Value Functions

### The "Absolute" Best Function

## Minimum & Maximum?

- The relative and absolute minimum of the graph above is 0 at x = 0
- There is no maximum for this graph, the arrows symbolize infinite numbers

## Odd or Even...?

## Examples:

## y = |x - 3| The -3 moves the graph right 3 | ## y = -|x - 3| The graph is presented as a negative, so the graph flips over the x-axis, and still moves right 3 | ## y = |x| + 2 The 2 is not a part of the |x|, so it moves the graph up 2, rather than left 2. |
