|8-2x| is equal to 8-2x when 8-2x >=0 and equal to 2x-8 when 8-2x<0. Thus, we can rewrite the disequality as two, i.e. 8-2x<3y-9 and 2x-8<3y-9. Rearranging and having looked at the answer choices, it is meaningful to explicit the term 2x as 2x>17-3y from the first disequality and 2x<3y-1 from the second one. This can be rewritten as 3y-1>2x>3y-17. Thus, the answer is E!
