Step 1
The expression inside the absolute value is (3x-5).
The absolute value of a number, a, is equal to the distance that a is from zero.
|a|=a,ifa0
=-(a), if a < 0
In the original definition for absolute value, replace each occurrence of a with (3x-5).
|3x5|=3x5, if 3x50
=-(3x-5), if 3x-5<0
Step 2
if x53, then |3x5|=3x5.
