# How do you solve and graph  r - (-5) > -2 ?

Jan 26, 2018

See a solution process below

#### Explanation:

First, remove the term on the left side of the inequality from parenthesis. Remember "minus a minus is a p;us":

$r + 5 > - 2$

Now, subtract $\textcolor{red}{5}$ from each side of the inequality to solve for $r$ while keeping the inequality balanced:

$r + 5 - \textcolor{red}{5} > - 2 - \textcolor{red}{5}$

$r + 0 > - 7$

$r > - 7$
