draw a number line, from -6 to 54.
then draw an open circle around -6 and another open circle around 54.
Then connect the circles by darkening the number line between them :)

I don't think that it can be graphed as written. The inequality is true. Any comments? I would gues that it was $-6t < 54$ this has the solution set $t> -9$
