here is my problem:

y>-4 **OR** y<2

my math teacher says that in this case when graphing this the answers would be "all real numbers" but doesn't OR mean that it CANNOT qualify for both which means that y could equal any number lessthan -4 or any number greater than 2?

can someone PLEASE help me with this!?!?!?!

i love math but i dislike my math teacher to the extreme and would like nothing better than to prove her wrong!!!
