Answer

$x=-.2$ and $x=1$

Work Step by Step

We are given that $|5x-2|=3$. Therefore, $5x-2=3$ and $5x-2=-3$ We can solve each equation to find the solutions. For $5x-2=3$, first add 2 to both sides. $5x=5$ Divide both sides by 5. $x=1$ For $5x-2=-3$, first add 2 to both sides. $5x=-1$ Divide both sides by 5. $x=-.2$
