# How do you solve and graph #-5<3p+7<=22#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Remember that you can **add or subtract any amount** to all components of an inequality without changing the validity or orientation of the inequality.

Therefore

after subtracting

Also remember that you can **multiply or divide** all components of an inequality by any constant **greater than zero** without changing the validity or orientation of the inequality.

Therefore

after dividing all components by

Note that in drawing the number line graph for this solution, an open circle is used at **is not** included in the solution,

and a closed (or solid) circle is used at **is** included.
