Don't ya just hate all that nasty stuff that comes back to haunt you?

<-- Note the switch from > to < because we are multiplying/dividing both sides by a negative number!

Your instructor will want one of these two methods for graphing. Both are fairly standard, though I think the second method might be used a bit more.

Method 1:

To sketch this, first sketch out a number line marking 0 and a few integers around it. Just above the line you want to draw a ) over the -1 to indicate that -1 is not part of the solution, then an arrow from the ) pointing toward the negative side of the number line.

Method 2:

To sketch this, first sketch out a number line marking 0 and a few integers around it. On the line, at the point y = -1 draw an open circle to indicate that -1 is not part of the solution, then an arrow from the open circle pointing in the negative side of the number line.

Perhaps someone will be good enough to show you what the sketches look like.
