Solve the absolute value equation. Graph the solution. │3x + 1│ = 1 x = 1 or x = x = or x = 0 x = 1 or x = –2 x = 1 or x = 0

    Set up two equations, because the absolute value of both -1 and 1 is 1 so 3x+1=1 and 3x+1=-1

    │3x + 1│ = 1 (3x+1)=1 and -(3x+1)=1 Can you figure it out? :o)

    Okay, lets do this one first 3x+1=1 -1 -1 3x=0 /3 /3 x=0

    Now, -(3x+1)=1 -3x-1=1 +1 +1 -3x=2 /-3 /-3 x= - 2/3
