True

#### Work Step by Step

In Figure 3, we are given that $\pi\approx3.142$. Therefore, $-|\pi|\approx-|3.142|\approx-(3.142)\approx-3.142$, so the given statement can be written as $-3.142\lt-3$. -3.142 is to the left of -3 on the number line, so -3.142 has a value that is less than that of -3. This statement is true.
