# How do you solve and write the following in interval notation: x > -2?

Aug 18, 2017

This inequality is already solved for $x$.

We can write it in interval notation as: $\left(- 2 , + \infty\right)$

see the solution below

#### Explanation:

$x > - 2$

since x can take up all values from -2

therefore, it can be written as

$x \in \left(- 2 , \infty\right)$

notice that the bracket is a closed one [$\left(\right)$] because the interval is simply greater than -2 not including it. And infinity($\infty$) is always excluded and hence under the open bracket [i.e $\left(\right)$]
