**Steve**, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 6:59pmIf |x+1| = 1,

x+1 is either 1 or -1, so

x = 0 or -2

Does either of those values satisfy the other equation?

**Steve**, Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 1:43pmDid you try the values?

x=0

|3x-2| = |3*0-2| = |-2| = 2

x=-2

|3x-2| = |3(-2)-2| = |-6-2| = |-8| = 8

This is the solution.
