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
3x1=1
+1 +1
3x=2
/3 /3
x=  2/3
