    First add 8 to both sides, =2|3x-5|=16 Then divide both sides by 2, =|3x-5|=8 Then you eliminate the absolute value, you do this by splitting the equation into two equatons in which one equals positive 8 and the other equals -8: 3x-5=8 and 3x-5=-8 I'm assuming you know how to solve one step equations, x comes to equal: x = -1 and 13/3
