#### Explanation:

First, make the y term positive:

Either:

Or, divide by

To draw the graph: treat it as

This will be a horizontal line through

However, because it is an inequality and y has to be MORE than -36, but not equal to -36, we use a broken or dashed line.

Shading the area ABOVE the line shows all the other possible solutions for

graph{y > -36 [-81.7, 78.3, -67.76, 12.24]}
