2. Azteck

It depends whether you want to graph that on a number plane or a number line.

3. Azteck

Usually if it just says graph x>-13/2, then it's a on a number plane, not a number line.

4. geerky42

It can be on number line since there is only one variable. Just because the variable is x does not mean we should use number plane. But again, you're right, it does depend. What subject are you on? @Ben103

5. geerky42

Ben103?

6. Ben103

algebra 2

7. Ben103

how would you graph x<-13/4

8. Azteck

For you @Ben103 , it's a number line then. So @geerky42 got you covered.

9. Ben103

would it be going left opened circle?

10. Ben103

?

11. geerky42

I think you should use number plane. Algebra 2 usually focuses on inequality, which usually have two variables. |dw:1358041581217:dw| Does this help you? Need any more examples?

12. Ben103

so its a closed circle?

13. Ben103

going right?

14. geerky42

For number line, use open circle, for plane, use dashed line. ">" only mean greater than, so it does not include the number itself. Yes it goes right. Is it clear?

15. Ben103

its closed circle no?

16. Ben103

ok opened circle going right. correct?

17. geerky42

I just use dot so you know it's -13/2. Just use dashed line. If you use number line, then no, it's not closed circle, it's opened. Which one do you use?

18. geerky42

Don't use circle if you use plane. Just dashed line.

19. Ben103

its x<-13/4

20. Ben103

and it goes to the right correct?

21. geerky42

x<-13/4 goes left.

22. geerky42

< goes left, > goes right.

23. Ben103

ok. And does the line start before the -4 or after it?

24. Ben103

*-5 i mean.

25. Azteck

In graphs, all you have to put are important features. you don't need to write a 4 or a 5. Just write -13/4. Unrelevant features does not give you extra marks.

26. Azteck

-13/2*
