    Function notation (with transformations) confusion, simple help needed

    Hello, im in a class where we're reviewing some things, and one thing has me confused:

    g(x) = f(x) + 3
    f(x) = |x|

    how would I graph this? This is particularly weird for me, because I bought the solutions manual for my book, and these kind of questions are on a handout, and not in the book. So its very difficult for me to just mess with it until I get an answer, because I dont actually have any answers.

    Would I simply change the function to g(x) = |x| + 3 ?
