Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when I'm graphing it, would I be looking for a negative or positive of x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If \(x >3\), then we will always have \(x + 3\). If \(x < 3\), then we will always have \((x + 3)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So with this one, x+3=0, x=3, but because of the negative sign I would graph it at (3,y). right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually... it didn't affect the graph, the graph came out to (3,y)... so I'm still a little confused lol
