# How do you graph and solve |1+x|<8?

$- 9 < x < 7$

We can graph this on a number line by placing hollow dots over $- 9 , 7$ (to indicate they are not part of the solution) and connecting the two dots with a line segment.

#### Explanation:

We can approach this question this way:

$\left\mid 1 + x \right\mid < 8$

$- 8 < 1 + x < 8$

$- 9 < x < 7$

We can graph this on a number line by placing hollow dots over $- 9 , 7$ (to indicate they are not part of the solution) and connecting the two dots with a line segment.
