    if |x-5| >0 , then x-5=3 if |x-5| <0, then -x-(-5)=3; -x+5=3

    since x is a variable, you can't say |x-5| is > or < than 0, so you must consider both cases (unless the question tells you if it is < or >)

    linear function means the graph will be a straight line so, if you take the same deltax for diferent x's, there should be the same deltay in both cases I guess it's a bit confuse - sorry I can't explain the right way cause my english is poor...
