Choose the correct description of the graph of the compound inequality x - 1 </= 9 or 2x >/= 24 A number line with an open circle on 10, shading to the left, and an open circle on 12, shading to the right. A number line with a closed circle on 10, shading to the left, and a closed circle on 12, shading to the right. A number line with an open circle on 10, an open circle on 12, and shading in between. A number line with a closed circle on 10, a closed circle on 12, and shading in between.

    Just by looking at it, you know that both circles have to be filled in.. right?

    after you know that, you can simplify each one individually, find the spot where each circle goes, and plug in a value into one of them to see if that value works. If it does shade in the direction of the value, if not shade in the other direction. Repeat for the other inequality by finding the value and shading

    right, you just have to figure out which way it is shaded

    You can complete the number line, just look to see which way the shading points

    try plugging in 0 into x<=10. does it satisfy the inequality? it does, so you must shade in the direction of 0 starting at 10. Similarly, plug 0 into x>=12. it doesnt work, so you shade the other way

    it reads "x is less than or equal to ten" and "x is greater than or equal to twelve"
