a_n+1/a_n = (n-2)/(n-1) * |x+3|

If |x+3| < 1, then the series is absolutely convergent.

-1 < x+3 < 1

Subtracting 3 from all sides, I got

-4 < x < -2, the interval of convergence.

My teacher wrote on my paper that I should check the endpoints to see if they are included. How do I go about this (my teacher went over this in class, but I seem to have lost the paper I wrote it on)?
