Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to graph it take each side to be y= you have x+3>1 draw line y=x+3 then you know that because of the   signs, your line is reflected so you only have a graph above the x axes. now draw the line y=1 then you want the region which y=x+3 is greater than y=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, we're supposed to show the result on the number line, no y involved here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ooh, @stebie that's not correct. Try out x = 2 in the original inequality, does it satisfy it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I just find the endpoints of the segments, then test a point to see whether the area between two endpoints, or between an endpoint and infinity is part of the solution set. I almost always use x=0 as a test point because the arithmetic is usually pretty trivial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no these 2 question should be solved together i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it does say "solution sets"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, if you think they are combined, plot all of the endpoints (solutions to the equalities), then try test points in each segment, plus between the endpoints and infinity. If the test point satisfies both inequalities, then that portion of the number line should be shaded.
