What is the value of $x$ for which $|3x+5|$ is not positive? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Hi Guest!

 

Since absolute value is always positive except when it equals 0, that means that we have to make 3x+5=0.

 

\(3x+5=0\)

\(3x=-5\)

\(\boxed{x=-\frac{5}{3}}\)

 

 

I hope this helped you, guest!

:)
