# Math Help - Absolute value inequality

1. ## Absolute value inequality

Hey there, my first post here. Anyway, I need to solve this inequality by giving an interval notation.

Here is the question:

|2/x - 3| < 5

the denominator x is just throwing me off =S

Any hints or insights would be greatly appreciated!

Hint:

When you take reciprocals in an inequality, the signs reverse...

I solved it but I didn't take the reciprocal...

I took the domain of the inequality and everything else was straightforward.

Thanks!
