# How do you graph x< –2?

Aug 28, 2017

#### Answer:

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We will draw a vertical line at $- 2$ on the horizontal axis.

The line will be a dashed line because the inequality operator does not contain an "or equal to" clause. Therefore the line is not part of the solution set.

We will shade to the left of the line because the inequality operator contains a "less than" clause:

graph{x < -2}

#### Answer:

Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Given:

$x < - 2$

Draw a straight vertical, dashed line at $x = - 2$. The dashed line indicates that the line is the boundary of the inequality but not part of it. Shade in the left side of the line to indicate the inequality $x < - 2$.

graph{x<-2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
