in the problem: |-4x+13| < -8, in order to solve it, you would have to bring the number -8 to the beginning and get rid of the absolute value lines. Would that 8 be a positive or a negative

Since the absolute value of anything is always positive, there is no way that the left side can be less than negative 8 .

 

So, there is no value of  x  that makes the inequality true.
