yupp...since it is an absolute value though what is the negative solution? what negative number plus 3 makes -6(since it is an absolute value equation if it is a -6, then it will be a 6)

@Yolo4mecuite , i would honestly put not possible. absolute value means that no matter whats inside of it it will turn out positive.
