 Question 237397: trying to solve y=-/x+4/. seems to be linear when i graph it and am expecting it to "V". I also did the positive equation for homework: y=/x+4/ this DID have a "V" graph result. Shouldnt the negative absolute be a mirror of it???Answer by solver91311(16868)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Not "should be", is. Let , then NOT +1. The absolute value of -1 is 1, the opposite of that is -1. Let , then Let , then Looks like the beginnings of an inverted V to me. John
