    abs(x-3) = x-3 if x-3 > 0 else -(x-3)

    you should ask them to solve both of these |x-3| <-8 and |x-3|=-8

    x-3 = 8 x= 11 and -(x-3) = 8 -x+3 = 8 x = -5

    i don't know how many times i have told me on here |something| does not have negative output so |f(x)|=-8 has no solution |f(x)|>0 is never less than 0

    so x-3 = 8 or x-3 = -8 so -5 <= x <= 11 is that right?
