2/3x-5/-8=8

Can someone help do not understand

**Henry**, Monday, August 27, 2012 at 9:15pm2|3x-5|-8 = 8.

Isolate the bracket:

2|3x-5| = 8+8

2|3x-5| = 16

Divide both sides by 2:

|3x-5| = 8

The number whose|8| can be +- 8:

3x-5 = +-8

3x = +-8 + 5

3x = 8+5 =13

X = 13/3.

3x = -8 + 5 = -3

X = -1.

Solution set: X = -1, and X = 13/3.
