The original function where y = absolute value of x is not shifted, or reflected. The fact that the 1/2 is inside of the absolute value and is multiplied by x means that the graph is stretched. The new graph is at 1/2 the height (slope) of the original, which means it is stretched out by 2.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
