(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known dataThe graphs y=abs(x) and y=(x^2)-6 intersect at x=3 and x= -3

What is confusing me is when I set them equal to eachother and solve (x^2)-x-6=0 and (x^2)+x-6=0 I get -3,+3,-2,+2

What is the deal with the negative 2 and pos 2?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
