when I'm graphing it, would I be looking for a negative or positive of x?
If \(x >3\), then we will always have \(x + 3\). If \(x < 3\), then we will always have \(-(x + 3)\)
You're amazing ! :D

Hehe :)

Well, I just use examples.
So with this one, x+3=0, x=-3, but because of the negative sign I would graph it at (3,y). right?
actually... it didn't affect the graph, the graph came out to (-3,y)... so I'm still a little confused lol
