# How do you graph the inequality -2<=x<5?

Aug 21, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We can rewrite this as system of inequalities as:

$x \ge - 2$ and $x < 5$

We can graph this by drawing vertical lines at the boundaries of the inequality at $- 2$ and $5$ on the $x$-axis.

The vertical line at $- 2$ will be a solid line because the inequality contains a "or equal to" clause.

The vertical line at $5$ will be dashed because that inequality does not contains a "or equal to" clause.

We will shade the space between the two lines:
