1. In general, when we solve an absolute value equation, we want to split it up
2. into two parts. One with an answer that's positive to represent the distance to
3. the right of zero, and one with an answer that's negative to represent the
4. distance to the left of zero, or negative 7. And here, since we have multiple
5. answers, we can list our answer as a solution set. So, the solution set is
6. negative 4 and 3. Remember to use the curly braces for the solution set. In
7. general, we usually list the numbers from least to greatest.
