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

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.
