I don't know which inequality symbol is used in your absolute value equation, so I can't help you out with writing the solution to this specific question in interval notation. However, I can give you some general pointers of interval notation.

Interval notation is used to write a range of values that all are possible solutions to an inequality. Typically, the lowest and highest numbers in your range of solutions are written inside a set of brackets or parenthesis. Square bracket symbols [
or ] are used when the lowest or highest number in your range is actually a solution to the inequality (like a closed circle on a number line). Parenthesis ( or ) are used when the lowest or highest number in your range is NOT a solution to the inequality,
but every number up to it is (like an open circle on a number line).

Example: -1 ≤x<3

x = -1, 0, 1, 2 are all possible integer solutions.

Interval notation: [-1, 3)

since (x - 4) is inside the absolute value, you will have two equations as follows:

x - 4 = 3 ---> x = 7

x - 4 = -3 ---> x = 1

so, x values are

**1 and 7**
