x >= 8?
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
yep. so firstly, would the circle be open or closed
anonymous
  • anonymous
closed!
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
yes! and would the shading be to the right or the left
anonymous
  • anonymous
so B?
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
no :/ because the shading would be to the right. x is greater than or equal to 8. and since the numbers on a number line get greater as you go to the right, the shading is to the right
