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.
