ok now idk how to graph it

to 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

No, we're supposed to show the result on the number line, no y involved here

Ooh, @stebie that's not correct. Try out x = 2 in the original inequality, does it satisfy it?

I 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

no these 2 question should be solved together i think

it does say "solution sets"

Well, 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.
