Given that x < 5, rewrite 8x + 5 - |x - 5| without using absolute value signs.

8x + 5      -   ( 5-x)         for x <5    the value will always be negative ....so the abs value will be positive..

                                           ..multiply value in the abs bracket by -1 and this is what you will get

= 9x
