# Thread: Graphing equalities on a number line.

1. ## Graphing equalities on a number line.

If anyone doesnt mind helping me with these few inequalities it would be greatly appreciated.

Solve each inequality and graph its solution on the number line:

4y>24 <__________________________>

3 - d > 5 <__________________________>

X/5 > 17 <__________________________>

2. ## you can do this

Solve each inequality and graph its solution on the number line:

4y>24 <__________________________>
<divide both sides by 4 to get y>
y>6
<draw a number line>
locate 0 and create coordinates up to 6
on 6, draw a hallow point (a circle, no shade)
create a line starting in the circle to the right (follow the > symbol)

3 - d > 5 <__________________________>
<subtract both sides by 3>
3-d-3>5-3
-d>2
<multiply both sides by -1>
-1(-d>2)
<take note that every time you multiply or divide both sides by negative in an inequality, the symbol will be changed to its opposite symbol>
d<2
<to graph>
in a number line, locate 0, and draw coordinates until 2
from 2, draw a hallow point
then extend a line to your left

X/5 > 17 <__________________________>
<solve for x>
<multiply both sides by 5, to cancel the denominator of x>
x>85
<to graph>
create a number line and this time you can have intervals of 10 since we are to locate 85
still use hallow point
and from 85, extend a line to your right

hoping, it helped.
