my choices are A. x - 5 > 4 or x - 5 < -4 B. -4 < x - 5 < 4 C. -8 < 2x + 3 < 8 D. x - 5 = 4 or x - 5 = -4 E. 2x + 3 > 8 or 2x + 3 < -8

It's A because |x - 5| < 4 means x - 5 < 4 AND x - 5 > -4, so the expression with the x will be "in the middle" for 2 inequalities.

It's an "AND" situation. The way to think about absolute value expressions being less than some (positive) number is that the positive number gives the maximum distance form "0" in either direction (negative or positive). No confusion. I corrected my answer to "B" "B" "B" NOT A
