    hint: solve for x in 7x + 21 < -7 AND 7x + 21 > 7 does that help?

    Wait, what? An absolute value inequality doesn't have a negative on its right-hand-side!

    This is a false statement, and does not satisfy for all \(x\).

    How can an absolute value be less than -7 when absolute value of anything is a positive number?

    IF not then PLZ LOOK AT THIS: let x be any real number. Then the absolute value of x, denoted by IxI, is a non negative real number defined by |dw:1343557688022:dw|

    Nope. \(|-x| =x \qquad |x| = x \)

    so, when 7x+21>= 0 then 7x + 21 < -7 x<-4 AND when 7x+21<0 then -(7x+21)<-7 x >-2
