How would you graph the inequality x > -5

• Math -

If you are on a number line, draw an open small circle at x= -5, then a line to the right of -5 with an arrow on the line

If you graphing in the xy-plane, draw a dotted line at x = -5 and shade in the region to the right of that line

• Math -

The region to the right of the x = -5 vertical line should be indicated as the solution region, by crosshatching, coloring or shading that region, or by blacking out the other region to the left of x=-5

See http://www.purplemath.com/modules/ineqgrph.htm for some ideas

I don't get how you would know which way to shade the inequality when it's true or false. For example the inequality 2x+3y> 12 When I solve it it's y>-2/3x+4 But when I graph the line how would I know which side to shade?
