# How do you graph the inequality  x>4?

May 9, 2017

On a number line graph:
Place an open circle at $4$ and an arrow pointing to the right.

#### Explanation:

$x$ is greater than $4$ which means that $4$ can not be part of the solution, that is why it is an open circle and not a closed circle.

$x$ is greater than $4$ means that any number larger than $4$ is part of the answer so even $4.00000000000001$ is part of the answer. so the line starts at the open circle and points to the right.

If you are using a set of axes you will have a vertical dashed line at $x = 4$ and shade the area to the right of the line. graph{x>4 [-1.813, 8.187, -2.44, 2.56]}
