Technically speaking, because the way you have the question written, in words the equation would be said as y equals onethirds multiplied by the absolute value of x, then minus two. Properly saying as y equals two less that the product of onethird and the absolute value of x.
The absolute value is the distance away from 0 therefor the value would alway equal as a positive value. EX1: 21 = 21 EX2: 21 = 21
even if you considered 2 within y=1/3x2 as 2 being negative two instead of minus two, then it would be the same meaning in the case that you have written out in a mathematical equation format, but really because 2 comes after 1/3x and 2 is not in parenthesis then it would make more since to say minus two.
