    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    0<[itex]\left|x+3\right|[/itex]<1/4


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    (-13/4)<x<(-11/4) and x[itex]\neq-3[/itex]

    Thanks in advance. This is my first post and I am unfamiliar with formatting this kind of stuff so I will work on getting better at that aspect.

    That looks OK. What's your question?

    The book says the solution is (-13/4)<x<(-11/4).

    It should be noted that this particular book is notorious for being rife with errors, but I always want to make sure that I am not wrong. Thank you LCKurtz.
