New user: Abs[] problem

     I'm starting Electrical Engineering and using Mathematica for 
helping me in Calculus e Algebra studies.

     I'm trying to solve this equation on Mathematica:
         x + 1 - |2x - 4| + |5 - x| = 0

     on the Math* notebook I'm typing:
         Solve[x + 1 - Abs[2x - 4] + Abs[5 - x] == 0,x]

     but only got an empty output: {{}}

     Someone please can help me get Math* to solve this?

     Thank you very much,

     Edson Brusque
