Calculate the speed of S immediately after the collision

My calculation goes:

28800 = 2000(v-12)

However, the markscheme has it as 28800 = 2000(12-v)

Both of these clearly yield different solutions. Is it due to the fact that the impulse is in fact -28800 (minus 28800)? How would one know that though?

Thanks
