the part i dont understand is the line
and how it works
Thank you for explaining clearly what you need to know. You are given four answer choices. My strong suggestion is that you solve each one for x. This will take only a minute or two. Once you've done that, you'll likely see the connection to the given graph more easily.
thanks but i already tried that and i still dont understand
Solve y+5>-2. show me your solution, please.
so i have to solve for y right?
yes. You said you'd already done this.
yes i tried understanding the graph by looking at the answer choices but i didnt really understand it
You aren't doing what I asked. I ask you to look at each of the four answer choices and solve each one for y. Are you willing to do that?
yes but i do not know how to solve for y that is also my problem
You've said you'd "already done that." Apparently you had not. This costs us time. If y + 5 > -2, subtract 5 from both sides.
Good. Now say in words what this symbolic relationship says.
y is must be bigger than -7
Very good. now, look at the graph. Can you find y=-7?
y+5>-2 is all in symbols and is therefore a "symbolic relationship."
oh ok and 7 is the circled one
so that would mean the answer is A right?
yes. Now: if we're talking about "greater than -7," do we circle -7 or do we put a dark dot on top of -7?
i have no idea
Not equal to : circle -7 Equal to dark dot on top of -7 Now look at y=-7 again. Would y=-3 be on the right side of y=-7 or on the left side?
the right side
Very good. Now answer A has already been re-written as "y>-7." Since we have the ">" symbol here, do we circle -7 or put a dark dot on top of -7?
right. and " y > -7 " states that y is greater than -7. So, starting at your circle, should we go right or left?
Left because we are working with negatives
No. We're comparing SIZE. if a number is greater than -7, it's on the RIGHT side of -7.
17 is greater than 13, so 17 appears to the right of 13, correct?
i said right look at the comment below
Oh, I see. Next time, write, "to the right."
oh ok sorry my bad
so, putting together what we know, that is, that this set does not include -7 and all numbers in the set are greater than -7, which of the four answer choices is the best one?
Right. I know you chose A before, but I wanted you to know exactly why A is the correct choice.
ok thanks again (sorry i wasted your time not being clear0
Any questions about what we've done?
You didn't waste my time; we learned to communicate, and you succeeded in solving the problem. Nice working with you.
thanks you too
My pleasure. See you.
i have one more question with inequalities i will put it in a new thread it is like fraction things bye
thanks for doing that; I appreciate it. Helps keep things more orderly here. See you!
