Step 1
To solve the equation: 3|x+1|−2=−11
Solution:
Solving the given equation.
3|x+1|-2=-11
3|x+1|=-11+2
3|x+1|=-9
$$\displaystyle{\left|{x}+{1}\right|}=-{\frac{{{9}}}{{{3}}}}$$
|x+1|=-3
But we know that $$\displaystyle{\left|{x}\right|}\geq{0}$$.
Absolute value of modulus is always greater or equal to 0.
