Please help me graph this
Absolute value x+1 inside absolute brackets 3<4
Where would this be on a graph line?

Not clear just what you mean, but if it's
x+1  3 < 3
x+1 < 6
Then either x+1 >= 0 (x >= 1) and
x+1 < 6
x < 5
or x+1 < 0 (x < 1) and
(x+1) < 6
x < 7
x > 7
So, we have
7 < x < 1 or 1<=x<5
that is,
7 < x < 5 
original problem was <4 at the end not <3....thanks for your help...It was hard to explain.

Oops. My bad. Make the change and solve again. The key is to solve for the two cases where the expression in  is positive or negative.
