## anonymous 5 years ago I x-3 I > 5 solve the inequality

Recall that: $|a| > b \iff a > b \text{ or } a < -b$ So take what you have there and rewrite your two new inequalities and solve them. The solution to your inequality will be the union of the solutions to these new ones.

x>8 cause you add 3 to both sides
