Can abs(28-7w)=7abs(w)
be written as abs(w-4)=abs(w)
and if so why surely it should be
can any one explain why I can just chane the signs

Yes, it can be written that way.

I don't see that you have changed any signs, you factored a postive seven out of both sides, and divided it out.

    would this be a correct proof of the cauchy-schwartz inequality: abs=absolute value abs(u*v) is less than or equal to abs(u)*abs(v). Then you divide both sides by abs(u)*abs(v) so that you get cos(theta) is less than or equal to 1.
