Graph each inequality on a number line.
Locate 1 on the number line. Draw an open dot on 1 because 1 is not included. The inequality
that all numbers less than 1 will make the sentence true. Draw an arrow from the open dot pointing to the left.
Locate 5 on the number line. Draw a closed dot on 5 because 5 is included. The inequality
numbers greater than or equal to 5 will make the sentence true. Draw an arrow from the dot pointing to the right.
Locate 9 on the number line. Draw an open dot on 9 because 9 is not included. The inequality w > 9 means that all
number s greater than 9 will make the statement true. Draw an arrow from the open dot pointing to the right.

Locate 9 on the number line. Draw an open dot on 9 because 9 is not included. The inequality w > 9 means that all
number s greater than 9 will make the statement true. Draw an arrow from the open dot pointing to the right.
Locate 2 on the number line. Draw a closed dot on 2 because 2 is included. The inequality
numbers less than or equal to 2 will make the statement true. Draw an arrow from the dot pointing to the left.
Write an inequality for each graph.
A closed circle is on 2, so the point 2 is included in the graph. The arrow points to the left, so the graph includes
all numbers less than or equal to 2. The inequality is
.
An open circle is on 5, so the point 5 is not included in the graph. The arrow points to the right, so the graph includes
all numbers greater than 5. The inequality is y > 5.
