**drwls**, Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 12:36amThis is not a calculus question. It is algebra.

There will only be an answer in this case when -5 < x < 3. You can convince yourself of that graphically. You have two V-shaped functions touching the x axis at x = -5 and x = 3. They have mutually parallel sides and they only intersect in one place.

In that region between -5 and +3, the equation becomes

3 - 2x - 2x -5 = 0

4x = -2

Therefore,

x = -1/2
