2x + 1 x = 0

(x+2)^2 - 1 x > 0

the problem im having with is "abs (x+3) x < 0" this part

as far as i know, since x < 0, x is approaching from the left

thus, abs (x+3) = -(x+3) ??????

but 0+3 > 0...? so +(x+3)?????

im really confusing if x+3 has to be negative or positive

someone put me in the right track please !!

thank you
