5 > z - 3
Would the answer be: 8 > Z?

• Math -

yes

Thank you for checking on this Scott.

So then the answer is 8 > (Greater than) Z

If I were to draw this on the number line. Would I do an open circle on the number 8 and then draw a line to the right?

• Math -

Not quite,
It is best to state 8 > z in a more direct way as
z < 8
You would draw your line to the LEFT.

(think of 8 > 5 as true, then 5 < 8 is the corresponding statement)

• Math -

line would go to the left

Z values are less than 8
