FAQ: How To Graph Absolute Value?

What type of graph is absolute value?

This lesson is about graphing an absolute value function when the expression inside the absolute value symbol is linear. It is linear if the variable “ x” has a power of 1. The graph of absolute value function has a shape of “V” or inverted “V”.

What is the absolute value of 8?

Absolute value is always nonnegative, since distance is always nonnegative. For example, the absolute value of 8 is 8, since 8 is 8 units from 0 on the number line. The absolute value of − 8 is also 8, since − 8 is also 8 units from 0 on the number line.

How do you do absolute value problems?


  1. Step 1: Isolate the absolute value expression.
  2. Step2: Set the quantity inside the absolute value notation equal to + and – the quantity on the other side of the equation.
  3. Step 3: Solve for the unknown in both equations.
  4. Step 4: Check your answer analytically or graphically.

What is the greatest integer function?

The Greatest Integer Function is also known as the Floor Function. It is written as f(x)=⌊x⌋. The value of ⌊x⌋ is the largest integer that is less than or equal to x.

What does a greatest integer graph look like?

The greatest integer functions (or step functions) can help us find the smaller integer value close to a given number. The greatest integer functions’ graph looks like a step of a staircase. We can translate the graph of $f(x) = [x]$ to graph other functions.
