See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given Information

There is the given graph we have to match each graph to its functions.

## Step 2. Identifying the function of the graph

When the right side of the function $y=f\left(x\right)$ is multiplied by $-1$ the graph of the new function $y=-f\left(x\right)$ is the reflection about the x-axis of the graph of the function $y=f\left(x\right)$.

Thus, the function whose graph is the reflection of the graph of $y=\left|x\right|$ in the x-axis is $y=-\left|x\right|.$

The given graph is a reflection in the x-axis of the graph of the function $y=\left|x\right|$ but it is vertically stretched by a factor of $2.$

## Step 3. Stating the function of the graph

When the right side of a function $y=f\left(x\right)$ is multiplied by a positive number a, the graph of the new function $y=af\left(x\right)$ is obtained by multiplying each y-coordinate on the graph of $y=f\left(x\right)$ by a. The new graph is a vertically stretched $\left(ifa>1\right)$ version of the graph of $y=f\left(x\right).$

Since the graph is vertically stretched by factor of $2.$

The function of the given graph is $y=-2\left|x\right|$ that matched to option L. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
