Answer:

#x = 1, x= =4#

Explanation:

The answer is not as simple as it seems. When dealing with absolute value questions you need to do case 1 and case 2 (positive and negative values within the brackets).

Case 1

#(2x+3) +6 =11#

#2x + 9 =11 #

#2x = 2#

#x= 1#

Case 2

#-(2x+3) +6 =11#

#-2x -3 +6 =11#

#-2x = 8#

#x =-4 #
