# Absolute Value Function

**Absolute value functions** become **piecewise functions** by following these steps:

1. Make the function equal to zero, without the absolute value and calculate their roots.

2. Form intervals with the roots and evaluate the sign of each interval.

3. Define the **piecewise function**, taking into account that the sign needs to be changed in the intervals where x is negative.

4 Graph the resulting function.
