###### Problem Solving

| x -2 | - |x -3| = |x -5| A. (-6, -5, 0 1 7 8 ) B. (-4 -2 0 10/3 4 5) C. (-4 0 1 4 5 6) D. (-1 10/3 3 5 6 8) E. (-2 -1 1 3 4 5) If we try 0 for x , then | -2| - |-3| = |-5| => 2 -3 = -1 != 5 so zero is not the solution and can rule out A,B,C. D,E ; try x as 4 : 2 - 1 = 1 == 1 so E is the answer. Bu...
