#### Answer

The solution set is {-2,8}. When graphing you would place a dot at -2 and 8 on the number line

#### Work Step by Step

|x-3|=5
You create two seperate equations, according to the absolute property rule.
x-3=5
x=5+3
x=8
and
x-3=-5
x=-5+3
x=-2
So, the solution set is {-2,8}. When graphing you would place a dot at -2 and 8 on the number line.
