    so when you say 'mod' you mean the absolute value function?

    The equations will keep splitting up and you'll have to keep track of all of them.

    \[\Huge||x-1|-5\bigg|-2 > 0\] ------->x<4 So lets take x as 3. Substituting, Okay positive. x>-2 So lets take x as -1. Substituting, Okay positive. x>8 So lets take x as 9. Substituting, Okay positive. x<-6 So lets take x as -7. Substituting, Okay positive. So that means all the solutions are acceptable.

    Combining these equations: \[ -2<x<4\\ x<-6, \quad x>8 \]Makes me thing it's \(x\in (-\infty,-6)\cup (-2,4)\cup (8,\infty)\)
