To find the coordinate of the vertex, set the inside of the absolute value equal to . In this case, .

Replace the variable with in the expression.

Simplify .

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance between and is .

Divide by .

Multiply by .

The absolute value vertex is .

The domain of the expression is all real numbers except where the expression is undefined. In this case, there is no real number that makes the expression undefined.
