    You have to get rid of the absolute value symbol. Thus making two inequalities:

    n-2 _< 5 n+2->5

    Then solve for n on both sides (meaning you would add 2 in first inequality and subtract 2 in second inquality. Your answers.....

    n_<7 or n_>3

    n - 2 <= 5 and n - 2 >= -5

    n <= 7 and n >= -3

    My answer is correct, by the way:
