### Why is the absolute value of 0 always 0?

Absolute value changes the sign of a number to positive, so
negative one becomes positive one, and positive one stays positive
one. Zero has no sign, and is therefore equal to its absolute
value. If you use a graphing calculator, or a graphing program
(online or installed software), and graph y equal to theabsolute
value of x, you will see two lines, y=x from 0 to infinity and
y=(-x) from 0 to negative infinity. When x=0, the two lines are the
same...

### When graphing circles how do you know which way to shade the line?

When graphing inequalities you use a circle to indicate a value

inequality you would fill in the circle. If the value that the
circle represents is not included in the solution you would leave
the circle unshaded.

### How do you draw the graph of modulus y equals cotx?

I assume that with "modulus" you mean the absolute value. Start
by graphing:
y = cot x
Remove negative values of the function value, since those can't
be satisfied by the equation. You will also need to reflect the
resulting function along the x-axis.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Algebra, Numbers

### Which statement holds true for absolute value functions The absolute value determines the direction in which the graph opens. The coefficient determines the line along which the graph is symmetrical.?

Neither statement is true. The graph of the absolute value of a
function which is always non-negative will be the same as that of
the original function and this need not open in any direction.
Also, the graph of y = abs[x*(x-1)*(x+2)] is not symmetrical so
there is no coefficient which will determine a line of
symmetry.

### Is x2 plus 8 a function?

x2+8= y
This equation represents a function. It will be a parabola with
the vertex at (0,8).
You can easily graph this on a graphing calculator or from prior
knowledge.
You know the basic graph of y=x2 with vertex (0,0) and opens
upwards on the y-axis. From the equation, you simply shift the
vertex vertically up 8 so the new vertex is (0,8)
This represents a function because for every x value there is
one y value.

### What do the absolute value of a function do to the graph of that function?

The absolute value of a function changes the original function
by ensuring that any negative y values will in essence be positive.
For instance, the function y = absolute value (x) will yield the
value +1 when x equals -1. Graphically, this function will look
like a "V".
