l 2x  - 8  l  + 3  = 5    subtract  3 from both sides

 

l 2x - 8 l   = 2      

 

This actually says that we have these two equations

 

(2x - 8)  = 2  or   - (2x - 8)  = 2

 

So...answer "K"

 

To see the reason for this suppose we have   l a l  = 9....note that two values of  "a"  make this true...either  a = 9  or  a = -9
