Deduce that if |x -3| < 1, then |(x + 2)^(2) - 25| < 11|x - 3|

Use this result to show, without using the Limit Laws, that

lim x -> 3 of (x + 2)^(2) = 25

I am really confused and dont understand this question

How are you suppose to know that it is suppose to be manipulated in that way? I would never have thought of that (Surprised)
