    Here's an example: |dw:1443379888847:dw| both 1 and 7 are 3 units from 4. I can write the equation |x-4|=3 to model the situation, since both positive and negative difference are covered by the absolute value function.

    look at the hint you were given an example as a hint, not the answer. you can work this from the example. what do you get?

    yes, you are looking at differences the difference between -1 and x is 3
